Reclaimed timber

I love to source old timber like this mixed hardwood framing from a 1950's
house. This is the timber in its rough sawn state, in others words it would have
come out of the timber mill looking exactly like this approximately 60 years ago.

After running the timber through some woodworking machinery and joining the boards we see all of the warmth and spectacular grain appear. As no two pieces of timber are the same this is always exciting and rewarding. 

Once the timber has been jointed it's ready for final sizing to become one of the components that will make up a piece of work such as this character filled contemporary kitchen in Thornbury, Melbourne.
