Blackbutt timber is found in Australia and is one of the most commercially available kinds of timber within the area.

Decks :

Outdoor decks can be a great place to lounge during the summer months, take in the evening air during the cooler ones, and connect with your family all year. Building a deck with blackbutt timber is a great choice if you’re looking for wood that is durable, heat resistant, and has a density that is a natural deterrent to termites. Considering getting benches or patio furniture for your deck? Blackbutt wood can be used for those things, too.
