Timber Choices

You may choose Ash (vic/tas), Baltic Pine, radiata pine, MDF or any of the real timbers listed below.

Depending on project, finish, use and size, some choices are better than others.  It can be an art to choose the right one – but I have plenty of experience to help you out….

These timbers are generally available.

They are a natural resource which means types, colours, price and availability change constantly.

You can expect these samples to be generally correct, BUT colours, grain and chatoyance change with every centimetre. One side of the tree will be different to the other. The top is different to the bottom. The tree next to it will be different.

This is why they are chosen. The very variance of the material makes it interesting.

You are welcome to supply your own timber, but it ***CANNOT*** be recycled. One hit of a nail destroys hundreds of dollars of speciality blades, plus its very bloody dangerous.
