Timbers we use

Primarily our choice of timber focuses on the timber’s stability.

We start with rough sawn dry timber, select out all visible defects, we straighten them, we dress them, we give them profiles and rebates and tenons and mortices. Then we assemble sashes, doors, doorframes, and window frames, and we glaze them, and fit operational hardware.

The timbers we use, include: 

  • Western Red Cedar
  • Merbau
  • Tasmanian Oak and Victorian Ash
  • New Guinea Rosewood
  • American White Oak
  • Meranti (South Pacific Maple)
  • European Beech
  • Accoya
  • Clear finger jointed pine (Internal use only)

We also use marine grade plywood, and concealed chipboard when appropriate.

The timbers we don’t use include:

  • Ironbark,
  • CCA treated pine,
  • Pre-primed timbers, recycled timbers and medium density fibreboard.
