Karri heartwood is reddish-brown, paler in colour than jarrah when fresh but maturing to a more uniform brown. The grain is interlocked with some wavy grain, the texture is even, moderately coarse and prone to checking. Ideal timber for general construction as it is available in clear long lengths and large sections. Although the shrinkage classification is high, Karri suffers minimal bowing, warping or twisting during the seasoning process. All stock carries PEFC certification.
