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!
