Tasmanian blackheart sassafras is a unique and distinctive timber found in Tasmania, Australia. Let me provide you with some details:

  • Color: Tasmanian sassafras is naturally a golden-grey color.
  • Blackheart Sassafras: The common name “blackheart sassafras” refers to the characteristic brown, black, or even sometimes purple or green streaks that form through the heart of the wood1.
  • Versatility: While the wood is light and strong, it is rather soft and easily worked. It is used for both veneer and lumber and might be at its best when quartered2.
  • Decorative Work: Blackheart sassafras is highly prized for decorative work and bowl turning, as no two pieces are ever the same. The dark streaks give it a striking appearance3.

So, if you’re looking for a distinctive and visually appealing wood, Tasmanian blackheart sassafras is a great choice!
