You’ve got to love reclaimed timber. It’s tough, environmentally responsible, and aesthetically beautiful. And in Australia right now it’s almost as easy to buy as new.
Cafes, bars, homes, commercial buildings – everywhere you look timber finishes are making a comeback. The good news is much of it is recycled timber. Instead of decreasing in value, salvaged timber is sought after by contemporary designers for its character and story as well as its green credentials.
This rise in popularity is a tribute to the enthusiasm and persistence of recycled timber merchants like the Donchi family.
In the early 1980s Barry Donchi became interested in well-seasoned recycled timber for home building. He founded Nullarbor Sustainable Timber, Australia’s first registered timber recycler.
Current manager, Brendan Donchi, mixes Nullarbor’s large timber stocks with state of the art milling facilities. Get experienced help with recycled timber tables, benchtops and joinery, decking, lining, cladding, seating, slabs, stair treads, posts, shelving and more.
