Rustic Timbers

Our Beautiful Rustic Timbers

Eucalyptus Timber

Our thatch roofing products are supported by a variety of beautiful, sturdy rustic timbers, including eucalyptus timbers and cedar posts. While “rustic” may call to mind an old type of wood, it actually means that the wood has aged naturally or that it has been prepared in a certain way to appear rustic, while maintaining its strength and integrity. Safari Thatch sources rustic timbers including eucalyptus timbers and cedar posts for our clients.

Rustic timber has become popular in the past decade, and for good reason. It is:

  • Straight
  • Very sturdy
  • Used both indoors and outdoors
  • Commonly used in settings like water parks, zoos, and theme parks
  • Durable in most climates
  • Distinctive, since every piece is unique

It serves as the perfect support for many thatch products for both commercial businesses and residential homes. It’s used for:

  • Fencing
  • Trellises
  • Roof construction and support
  • Porch and deck roofs
  • Furniture
  • Mantels

Cedar Posts
