Jarrah wood dock by the pond - built 16 years ago.

Jarrah wood dock by the pond - built 16 years ago.
Made from 100 year old Jarrah wood railway sleepers, cut into thick planks.
Jarrah is a heavy wood, with a specific gravity of 1.1 when green. Its long, straight trunks of richly coloured and beautifully grained termite-resistant timber make it valuable for cabinet making, flooring, panelling and outdoor furniture. The finished lumber has a deep rich reddish-brown colour and an attractive grain. When fresh, jarrah is quite workable but when seasoned it becomes so hard that conventional wood-working tools are near useless on it.[3] It is very durable and water resistant, making it a choice structural material for bridges, wharves, railway sleepers, ship building and telegraph poles. A large amount was exported to the United Kingdom, where it was cut into blocks and covered with asphalt for roads.
