As a fine furniture maker for the past 30 years, I very soon came to realise the importance of working with exceptional materials and so I decided 17 years ago to venture into milling my own timber and I purchased my first Bandsaw Mill! I have never looked back. This allowed me to cut trees to the specific sizes I wanted and to showcase the concealed beauty within the logs, to their best advantage.
A lot of my timber was quarter-sawn for stability. Through this process, the realisation evolved that I was capable of cutting superb quality, quarter-sawn, instrument grade timbers. About 5 years ago I started sorting and putting aside specialty timbers for Luthiers, air-drying it and accumulating enough stock to start an on-line Guitar Timbers store to supply instrument makers.
We are now in a position to offer these beautiful guitar timbers to guitar makers through our on-line business, called “Australian Guitar Timbers”.
We hope you enjoy what we have to offer!
