    Timber - Just picked up a nice piece

    We purchased this last October, had to collect earlier than expected, 7hr round trip.

    Donít get to many ironbarks this size these days

    3.6m long x 700 tapering down to 570

    Over the six months it was drying out at the mill we had seven offers to buy it.

    That's a lot of barbeque fuel, which is all wood is good for. It won't bend, fold or form and is impossible to weld, even with Woodcraft rods.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    In preparation for our new off grid house, once we find a block of land, in 3 maybe 4 years

    Will become bench tops, dining tables, furniture....... etc

    They are 65mm slabs, probably 5-7mm too think.

    Bench tops will be fantastic. Our benchtops are blackwood, 35 years plus though

    We wanted the finished size to be 50mm, from memory he went 65mm to get seven slabs, to cut eight slabs the size would have dropped to 55mm which may off made it tight to make 50mm finished.

    Itís only a vision at the moment, planning 3-4 years ahead......we think we got it at an OK price and you donít get this size pop up very often.
