Red Grandis, also known as Rose Gum, is a hardwood species in the eucalyptus family from Australia and a select group of plantations around the world.  This species is moderately durable, and a very sustainable alternative to mahogany/sapele.  It is used in cabinetry, furniture, doors, boat building, flooring, and millworks.  Red grandis boasts a uniform, straight grain with a medium texture.  It machines, stains, and glues well.  Red grandis weighs 3 pounds per board foot, and has a Janka hardness of 1200.
