Silky Oak

grevillea robusta

Silky Oak has been widely used for cabinet making but is now in limited supply in the coastal rainforest areas of the Queensland/N.S.W. border. Its timber varies from fawn to darkish brown with large rays that give it an “oak-like” figure. The early timber getters called it “oak” because of its resemblance to English oak and “silky” because of the “silkiness” of the wood when cut.
