    Default Somewhere in Melbourne that offers jointing and thicknessing??

    Anywhere in Melbourne area that offers timber jointing, thicknessing and laminating service? I donít have a jointer or thicknesser, and I need roughly 30 boards to be dressed to flat and to squared corners, I sent a couple of emails to big factories and I donít receive any replies, maybe they are too busy to take care of small customers like me!

    Please help

    You might find that business are not prepared to put foreign material through their machines. A damaged blade is costly, not only for re-sharpening but down time.

    Have you thought about trying a men's shed for the timber dressing part? You might need to spread it over a few visits so others can use the machines

    If you give enough information about what you are asking it might make it easier for someone to help you.

    - Melbourne is a big place, where are you?

    - species of timber and sizes.

    - is the timber recycled or new? if new how long has it been milled for and moisture content.

    I doubt anyone would put up their hand to help you without at least that information.

    Premier: machining & processing timber to perfection.

    Reliable, good price and you'll probably get your timber when they say you will, which can't be said for everyone doing similar. Not sure of the smallest run they'll do.

    I visited a bloke in Alberta Canada who was doing a range of upmarket kitchen utensils.
    He had an auto lathe or three and charred finish maple was the big seller.
    Sold thru a few trendy shops and markets direct.
    We have a rolling pin somewhere, gave it to my daughter so no photo.

    Great company, used to cart a lot of timber to these guys, never mucked around and great to deal with.

    Looked like theyíve moved to new premises, looks like theyíve got 3 times more space than the old place.
    Cheers

    Owen, welcome aboard.

    Depending on your location and how far you wish to travel, I would suggest you join a Men's Shed or Woodworking club.
    After you do safety training etc , you will be able to joint and thickness to your hearts content.
    There is a club in Eltham called Eltham District Woodworkers you could join. Just search for their website for details.
