cadellia pentastylis

Ooline grows in a narrow band in south-west Queensland amongst the dry land Ironbarks and Acacias. Its timber is very attractive, varying from pink to red with a pale straw-coloured sapwood. Ooline is commonly known as “solid” wood because of its reputation for being very hard. It has no known uses. Whilst cutting it with a chain saw is difficult, it turns relatively easily on a lathe.
