Macrocarpa is highly sought after for its' light "honey" colour and natural lustre when used for decorative wall panelling and ceilings.  It can be left to colour to a distinctive silver/grey naturally, oiled, painted, blonded, or polyurethaned to highlight its distinctive characteristics. Macrocarpa is increasingly being used, both internally and externally, to give a distinctive natural look with bandsawn finish.

Macrocarpa is a classified as a softwood.  Although we meet requirements to have all our panel grade timbers below 16% moisture content, there will often be some shrinkage in the dry house atmosphere. (recommend butt joins 45d)
