    Good thought, but Kimbriki is closed at the moment (Big red sign out front saying, "Sorry, closed due to Covid")

    I've never had much luck there with recycled timber. They don't seem to have much on hand at any one time. Usually just a few sticks of treated pine and maybe some Oregon occasionally.

    Yep. As Ross said closed due to Covid - May have been caught up in the Northern Beaches lockdown?
    I solved the problem by buying new laminated beams the exact size I was after. Good price too

    Local tip shops tend to have much more hardwood than treated pine, almost always salvaged, often 100+ years old - square nails and all. But you never know what you will find. I have found it best to buy whatever looks useful for the future and the right project almost always comes along. Hard to shop for a specific project.

    But their prices are usually less than 10% of BigChain, stuff has been air drying for many years, and the nail holes are free.

    A lot of hardwood logs come from private property too
    Particularly from gas fields in Qld where the landowner can generate extra income
    It's not all plantation grown and not always for woodchip
    The volumes being exported are eye watering!
    Why in heaven we can't value add our own logs defies logic

    Talking to the owner of a local timber yard today and he was saying that the building boom in the USA is pushing up our pine prices/ availability. Most of our T2 pine comes from Europe and the yanks are offering 30% more than we have been paying for it so it is heading there instead of here.
    The amount we produce locally is well short of our requirements as well.
