Recycling Timber is hard, dirty work!
It’s heavy, stubborn, full of splinters and covered in old rusted-in nails that need to be metal-detected then clawed, chiselled and wrenched out manually in our nail pit. Getting to the beautiful end product is hard yakka and a very labour intensive process!
Australian timber is very dense and considered the hardest timber in the world. Did you know that a lot of joineries won’t even touch recycled timber because it’s so hard to work with and destroys machinery!
