Kings Cross Jarrah

Collection: RARE FINDS


About this product

This Rare Find has already been on a journey that has taken it across land and oceans, a journey that started hundreds of years ago in the forests of Western Australia.

Jarrah started being imported from the forests of Western Australia in 1887 when a shipment of Jarrah blocks were sent to London to be used as street pavement in place of cobblestones. At the same time, the area around Kings Cross was developing rapidly from its humble beginnings.

A significant potato market grew up on the eastern margin of the goods station. At the peak of the season, there could be a thousand loaded potato carts waiting to be unloaded into one of the many warehouses.

The arrival of the 21st century has seen some significant changes to the Kings Cross area. As part of this regeneration, we were able to acquire a large quantity of Jarrah wood from one of the old potato warehouses.

The wood that came out of the Kings Cross warehouse was in lengths of up to 2200mm long and 200mm wide – which for Jarrah is very wide. We have worked this amazingly dense hardwood to manufacture wide and long engineered planks retaining their original surface patina and undulations – and even the marks made by the clout nails used to fix the boards down.

The importance of conservation and protecting our natural resources makes it more important that reclaimed timber such as Jarrah is valued. We’re privileged to be able to extend its life and provide a hardwood floor of such quality.

Architectural Details

Add the perfect finishing touch with our architectural details all of which have been specifically designed and manufactured for Ted Todd. 

Mouldings, trims, beads, skirting, architrave, treads and risers are architectural details that are an essential part of every flooring installation. Special consideration should be given to floor-to-floor transitions, floor-to-wall design, and how floors progress across multiple levels.

Architectural details give spaces cohesion and create a harmonious flow, softening connections and hiding delineations. All of these  details are most effective when they work seamlessly with your floor. This is why our floors and architectural details are created by us, to complement each other.


Installing a wood floor is no mean feat and we always recommend it is undertaken by a professional flooring fitter.

Everything you need to know to install and care for your floor can be found in our installation guides, which you can find here.

Care and maintenance

To prevent any potential harm to your floors, it’s crucial to choose the right cleaning products. Unlike many generic floor cleaners that contain solvents or bleach, which can lead to floor damage and discolouration, our Ted Todd specialist cleaning products have been designed to protect and promote floor longevity.

  • If your floor has a lacquered or hardened oil finish, use Care System 1.
  • If your floor has a natural oil or hardwax oil finish, use Care System 2.
  • If your floor is white and has a lacquered or hardened oil finish, use Care System 3.
  • If your floor is white and has a natural oil or hardwax oil finish, use Care System 4.
