This is a really helpful topic covering timber outside of the US.
Can you do one for plywoods?
It’s very useful information! Thanks for the video Steve
Do you get much silky oak down that way Steve ? I just recycled a lot of it, one piece was 330mm wide 20mm thick ~1500mm long from a 1951 desk !
I can easily get Australian Cypress, Any tips for working with it? Seems to split incredibly easy.
Thank you for your videos, I really enjoy then, I had a question about where do you buy your timber in Australian?
Yes mate we get some but that is huge, I renovated my sons 1940’s house in Melbourne and found the kitchen tops were 450 mm x 25 mm sugar pine under the laminex!!!! I cleaned it up and we all use that for rolling pizza out on, wow 1 piece 450 wide we don’t set that anymore
Thanks mate that was great info 👍🏽
Thanks mate, always difficult on this topic as most of the info is based on the US market. This summarised it all very nicely. Cheers.
about to make a couple of medal boxes out of Jarrah. How does it play with hand tools i.e planes and chisels. I have heard it can have silica in the timber and blunts tools pretty quick. What is your experience. thanks mate
Great my son is autistic and is looking to find some Buloke, Salmon gun, red gum and have been unable to locate in the U.S. …..can you help? Please and Thank You
Where are u located mate? Anywhere near Newcastle?
Would be good to see you show off some Marri and Sheoak as well. Nice video and some great projects you have there mate. I will have to check some of your other stuff
the 1 major problem with Jarrah, it was great for everything. From canals and boats in Holland to the roofing and framing for almost every west australian house built before 1980. If you don’t mind de-nailing and burning through saw blades you can find it all over perth. Like all our good timbers they also just happened to be concentrated in the prime agricultural region which also furthered their demise.
Thanks Steve just starting out great info
Good stuff mate.
Thanks Steve! Very helpful. Just made the Mrs a jewlerry box. Now I can tell her the timber I used is Jarrah haha cheers mate.
I turn redgum and there seem to be no quicker way to blunt a turning tool!
I didn’t know they spoke American in Austria
Great video👍 have you heard of Budgeroo?
Thanks very informative.
I have just purchased a Lucas mill to use on the few trees I have had to cut down on my property for safety and access. I’m not sure of the Latin names for them but here we call them brushbox, tallowood and forest gum ( sometimes referred to as flooded gum.
I would imagine they are close to some of the ones you listed there?
Hi mate, great video 🙂 I’m new to woodworking and was wondering if you have any advice on where to locate lumber in here in AU? Preferably cheaper than Bunnings 😅
I have a Jarrah Snare drum from Tama. It is amazing.
thank you for the video, is blackwood the best I can find for carving?
Awesome video mate, makes me feel So lucky to have access to these marvels being an Aussie

Very entertaining and gripping video you produced.
Yes, Australia and NZ do possess massive treasure of beautiful and exotic wood.
Do you mind sharing your contact number or email address ? From China, I have a few good and serious inquiries of Softwood Lumber and burls. Lets see if both of us can dig out something for these Chinese buyers.

Hi mate, what’s the best Australian timber for furniture making? Love your explanation
hi father steve iam from algeria north africa . i llike your chanel , love you father steve god bless you and have a happy life
Beautiful stuff Steve, thanks mate. Some of that stuff looks more mineral than wood!
I have to agree with you on the saw blades that Festool make. Try cutting along the grain of any Australian hardwood with the TS55 and the blade flexes badly. It’s a big problem with our hard woods. So often have to go back to the table saw to get a decent cut. For the money you pay for Festool, they should be able to do the job. Sadly very lacking in this respect.
Great stuff don’t forget Tasiman Oak
hey mate who do you order most your timber from?
Third time’s a charm Steve 😂
Awesome video Steve, very real talk. No ads and no BS. Thank you!
