Sustainable Australian Timber Slabs.

We are serious about what we do. We salvage, mill and kiln dry all our timber; none of our logs are sourced from forestry and all of our pieces come with a unique story of the trees history.

The Wood Project supply timber slabs from salvaged log, kiln dried at our factory on the Mornington Peninsula.

The Wood Project salvage logs and mill them to produce an amazing array of natural, sustainable timber slabs (see below for our extensive and ever changing range of timbers). We own and operate our own kiln, our timber slabs are kiln dried down to 10 percent moisture content – which is optimum for furniture making.

We offer a large, unprecedented stock of  ‘live’ edge slabs. Visit our warehouse, walk away with a timber slab and work on it yourself or pick a timber slab of your choice and we will create a custom piece of furniture for you.

‘Live’ means that the natural edges of the slab are kept in tact.  Live edge furniture has a beautiful uniqueness, warmth and character. There is always the option to remove the live edges, but they are always left on during the milling process to give you both options when picking out a slab.

Due to our timber being milled from salvaged logs, the grains and character of the wood are like no other. Some of the trees we salvage are more than 180 years old with an incredible amount of history and character. Our range of salvage timber includes:

Sugar Gum Table

Messmate Table

Cypress Table
