Auction of native timbers for artisans and craftspeople

27 October 2011

The Forest Products Commission is expecting a large turnout of wood and craft enthusiasts at its auction of specialty timbers. The timber will be sold at auction on 5 November at FPC’s Harvey Mill.

The auction is an opportunity for local craftspeople to purchase high quality native timber. The rich colours and distinctive features of Western Australian timber are the inspiration behind much of the high quality furniture and wood designs created by local artisans.

Going under the hammer is more than 300 tonnes of speciality logs and sawn timber. The sawn lots include slabs and boards of tuart, marri, karri, jarrah, jarrah burl and sheoakSome of the jarrah slabs are beautifully figured and include the desirable curly and birdseye features. Table packs are also available in most species along with a range of timber suitable for wood turning.

The timber can be inspected at 64 Weir Road, Harvey, during normal business hours or on the day of the auction between 8.00 am and 9.30 am. Steve Davis can be contacted on 0427 380 632 for anyone who wants to arrange an inspection.
