42mm x 19mm #1 Clear Hoop per metre

$10.13

We sell #1 Clear Grade Hoop Pine. This is as good as it gets. It is Australian plantation grown, hoop pine is an Australian native tree (Acuacaria Cunninghamii). This tree is native to the rainforests of northern NSW and Queensland. Originally the plantations were created for sailing ship masts, now they yield timber which according to "Wood in Australia" by Keith Bootle is almost exactly the same strength wise as Douglas Fir (Oregon). It weighs about 530kg per cubic metre. It is ideal for boat building and is also used frequently for homebuilt aircraft construction.

These Hoop Pine lengths are DAR, dressed all round. We stock lengths up to 6 metres, average of 4.8metres. We will cut to length.

Only lengths up to 1 metre can be sent by Australia Post. Lengths up to 2 metres can go with Fastway. Longer lengths must go by truck (Border Express, Followmont etc.) The freight calculator does not automatically work this out, you must select the correct transport. If you wish to buy multiple pieces, enter the total length here and supply a cutting list in the comments to your order or email them separately.

The very high quality Hoop Pine, the No 1 Clear Grade which we supply has become very difficult to obtain.  We have looked for alternatives, Queensland Kauri being closest, but it just doesn’t have the same strength.

Long lengths (greater than about 5 meters) and larger sections have become impossible, how-ever by accepting some with “Blue Stain” we now can offer some long lengths and some 42x42 material.  Even though it has “Blue Stain”, the mills are charging us a premium for the long lengths.

Unfortunately, we are going to have to add a 20% surcharge for pieces longer than 5.1 metres in length.

Blue Stain has no effect on the strength or durability of the timber, it just looks unsightly and is probably not suited for clear finishing.  We have obtained advice from the Queensland Government Timber Research Facility in Salisbury regarding this.  Their formal advice is
“Blue stain is a common cause for the discoloration in timber and shades can be blue to bluish black or gray to brown. Blue stain has no effect on the performance and strength of timber nor is structural material downgraded due to the presence of blue stain.”
