Bimble box, also known as Poplar Box because of the shape of the leaf, is common throughout most of inland Queensland and NSW.
Bimble box is a fairly hard wood to turn, even while green, but has a quite attractive colour and figure to most of it. The timber sands well, being short-grained, and takes a high polish.
