    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.

    Hey,
    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 1940โ€™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 donโ€™t set that anymore

    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

  14. Emcee Boogieboots on April 27, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    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.



  16. Robert Todd on April 27, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Thanks Steve just starting out great info



  17. David Antonelli on April 27, 2022 at 6:48 pm

  19. Gomisan on April 27, 2022 at 6:49 pm

    I turn redgum and there seem to be no quicker way to blunt a turning tool!



  20. David Duffy on April 27, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    I didnโ€™t know they spoke American in Austria



  21. Harry Godfrey on April 27, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    Great video๐Ÿ‘ have you heard of Budgeroo?



  22. Tegan Nottelling on April 27, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    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. Iโ€™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?



  23. Todd Murphy on April 27, 2022 at 6:53 pm

    Hi mate, great video ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ๐Ÿ˜…



  24. Jacob Goulart on April 27, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    I have a Jarrah Snare drum from Tama. It is amazing.

    Hello Steve
    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.
    My email: inquirykbocl@gmail.com and mobile # +92 310 214 9796 (Whatsapp)

    Cheers
    Najam, Farid

  34. Alistair Borland on April 27, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Beautiful stuff Steve, thanks mate. Some of that stuff looks more mineral than wood!



  35. Sam Sabastian on April 27, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    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



  37. Fly on April 27, 2022 at 7:23 pm
