Tongue n Groove

Tongue n Groove

Tongue n Groove

At Tongue n Groove we are passionate about oak. We love its character, its patina and the elegance it bestows upon each and every project. It is this passion, along with feedback from the market, which inspired us to create a completely new type of engineered timber.

Most engineered wood is just layers of ply under a timber façade whereas our product is fashioned from three layers of solid European oak, bonded together using state-of-the-art engineering methods. This gives our customers one of the strongest boards on the market – unrivalled in terms of size, strength, flexibility of use, stability and quality.

However, it isn’t just our boards’ superior quality that has caught our clients’ attention, it’s our aesthetic appeal too. Working with some of Australia’s leading architects and designers, we have created an inspired palette of colours and finishes, all treated with natural oil to allow for easy maintenance. Moreover, since coming to market with this product, we have been commissioned by various practitioners up and down the country to collaborate on a diverse range of projects – both residential and commercial. Take a look at our project section to see some of our work!
