Types of Timber for Furniture
Creating sustainable furniture from native Australian recycled timber
In Australia, we are so lucky to have such as wide range of beautiful and sustainable recycled timbers available to us to create truly stunning and unique furniture. At Bombora Custom Furniture, we primarily use wood from the local Victorian Eucalyptus species of Messmate, Tasmanian Oak and Victorian Ash to build our pieces of recycled timber furniture. We prefer to use these timber’s as they are hard wearing, have low travel miles, are readily available recycled and create a beautiful finish. In saying this, one of our favorite pieces is made from stunning recycled Jarrah wharf timbers which can be a little harder to come by. When requested, we also use newly harvested timber that has been certified by the Forest Stewardship council (FSC) such as American Oak and Wormy Chestnut.
