Quality timbers go under the hammer

2 March 2012

The Forest Products Commission (FPC) is expecting spirited bidding from wood enthusiasts and craftspeople attending the quarterly log auction to be held at 10.00 am on 10 March 2011 at FPC’s Harvey Mill.

Regular auctions provide the opportunity for participants to purchase a unique range of assorted native timbers. The rich colours and distinctive features of our Western Australian timbers are often the inspiration behind exceptional furniture or craft designs produced by local artisans.

Going under the hammer will be approximately 400 tonnes of assorted native speciality logs, including a quality selection of marri, karri, blackbutt, jarrah (logs and burls), wandoo, sheoak and woody pear.

Sawn timber will include slabs and boards of blackbutt, marri and marri birdseye, karri, jarrah and jarrah burl, wandoo, holly leaf banksia and sheoak. Table packs are also available as well as a large range of items that would suit the avid wood turner or craft person. Some of the jarrah slabs are beautifully figured and include desirable curly and birdseye feature.

Timber can be inspected at 64 Weir Road, Harvey, during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, or on the day of the auction between 8.00am and 9.30am. To arrange an inspection prior to auction contact Steve Davis on 0427 380 632.
