We stock a large selection of quality timber products including professional surface coating strippers and cleaners, wood fillers and 100% pure natural oils by Organoil for a multitude of internal and external applications. 

 

For natural finish windows and doors we recommend Cutek exterior oil which soaks right into your timber rather than just sitting on the surface.  If you are not sure about which tint to use on your specific timber, borrow a sample tin from us to test it on your timber first.  As an alternative to Cutek we also now stock Intergrain UltraDeck for you timber decking and exterior timber surfaces.

We have also added to our range the innovative screws and fasteners by SPAX for any timber connection. With screw lengths ranging from 15-800mm we are sure to have just what you need. SPAX is the benchmark worldwide for safety, strength and efficiency and is what we used for the Macquarie University Innovation Hub project that was completed earlier this year.

Australian and imported hardwoods

We stock a variety of timbers to suit the needs of carpenters, craftsmen and home renovators.

 

We offer a milling service if you are trying to match cladding, cornice, architraves or skirting and have hundreds of cutters to choose from. Please contact us with your requirements or bring in an off cut that you are trying to match and we can provide you with a quote. 

Visit our specifications page to view some of the timbers we typically have readily available. We can supply both imported and Australian timbers, however we only source timber from accredited suppliers who use FSC and Rainforest Alliance products.  

If the timber you are wanting to use is not listed on our specifications page please do contact us and we can call our suppliers.

Biomass briquettes

A few years ago business owner, David Spees, purchased a German made machine that turns all our timber sawdust into highly efficient, clean burning cylindrical shaped briquettes.  This is done by hydraulic compression alone... no glues, no additives, just pure sawdust.

These briquettes have been a big hit with the locals in the cooler months for their woodburners.  But as we found out when speaking to our regulars, they had a multitude of uses, including compost, mulch, chicken coops, garden paths and more.

In 2017 we worked with Cleanaway to apply for a Bin Trim rebate through the Environmental Protection Authority, and our application was successful.  This rebate went a small way toward the purchase of a more powerful machine that produces a larger rectangular shaped briquette.  

These new improved briquettes are super efficient - you use less fuel to heat your home, get a hotter fire with less ash and less creosote build up in your flue.  Regular firewood has a moisture content of up around 26%, our briquettes contain less than 12% - its the moisture that reduces heat output, creating more smoke emissions and creosote build up. 

Switch from firewood to our briquettes and reduce your own carbon footprint... and give away your axe!
