Alan has used our Railway Sleeper Decking to create this gorgeous boardwalk bridge over his pond.
These boards are our "weatherd edge" sleepers and have been milled to a 1200 x 50mm board. See how well they give that earthy, grounded look! An excellent example of how a new product can look like it's been there forever. Love your work, Alan!
We don't usually think to post where the timber that makes our products comes from but a few people have asked me lately, so here are some photos of a batch we picked up last week.
This particular load of timber comes from a huge chicken farm on 160 acres near Richmond that's being redeveloped. We pick it up and take it to our mill just south of Casino.
From there, the boards are de-nailed and passed through metal detectors.
The faces of the boards are then sliced off and if they are suitable, become feature wall panels or architectural screening boards or sometimes even decking.
The rest of the board is then sawn into floorboard or decking board sizes and moisture tested.
When required, the boards are kiln dried to Australian standards.
They then pass through our moulders, giving them a tongue and groove or a pencil round decking profile and usually colour graded into reds or creams.
It's then packed, strapped and shipped all over the country!
Ashley, not being a carpenter, has done a spectacular job of laying his own deck. Look how fantastic the recycled reds decking boards look!
Work still in progress..
