    Hi, I am not in Sydney and do not know any Sydney members who may be able to help. (Sydneysiders where are you???)

    However, I have purchased timber from a number of NSW and Sydney suppliers over the years so you could try them if that is any help:
    Boutique Timbers on the north coast (http://www.boutiquetimbers.com/p/timber-selection.html)
    Trend Timbers in Mulgrave (http://www.trendtimbers.com.au/);
    Also, When I lived in Sydney I used to buy from Anagote timbers, who are now in Marrickville. (http://anagote.com/)

    Good luck.

    Try some of the salvage yards. There's a great place in sydney call ironwood. I've picked up some large oregon planks (100x250) from there and with a bit of work with the plane and various sanders they looked great.

    Hi, I'm not sure how far away you want to go, or how far you are, but Crescent Timbers in Annandale might be able to help. I don't know what flavours of wood they have, but they will be able to provide the sizes you want pretty easily.

    hth, good luck.
