Description


Spotted Gum is a tough timber which has been weathered by harsh conditions. This weathering produces spotted gum’s unique characteristics: gum veins and a wavy grain which results in a ‘fiddleback’ effect. Architects and Specifiers favour Spotted Gum for its individuality and stunning colour palette which ranges from light browns to dark reds. It is also known as Lemon Scented Gum.
