I have noticed there is a lot of threads by people looking for timber suppliers in Perth. For some reason it seems to be a challenge to easily find a supplier over here within the metro area.
So far I have been to Bunnings (only supply Jarrah, Pine and Tassie Oak), Gunns (also only supply Jarrah, Pine and Tassie Oak). The stuff at Gunns is really second rate, I get a handfull of spinters every time I pick some wood and you have to be really carefull when you go through the racks for pieces that do not have splits through the pieces. I have found the Bunnings stuff to be good quality but I know that it can be had cheaper elsewhere, like everything in Bunnings.
Yesterday I tried a new mob I found out about called Austim which are located in Wangara. They have a very good selection of exotic timbers, how ever you have to dress it yourself or have this done somewhere.
I have a price list here but I dont know of anywhere else that sells these timbers so I can't compare. I bought some Sheoak and Tassie Blackwood the Sheoak is $22.96 Lm for 175x25.
Whilst I was there I also grabbed a pile of samples that have been made up. Really handy reference to show somebody what a piece looks like when finished.
Hope this helps some others trying to source timber in Perth.
Another good source of timber in Perth is BALKAN TIMBERS. Bill has everything from slabs to skirting boards.
Sorry, I don't have his details with me.
Trev, is this the mob BALKAN TIMBERS
