    Default Timber Material Brisbane Gold Coast

    Hi there! I am new to the forum. I am beginning to play with some small scale CNC jobs at home working with timber. However I've run out of 'practice' material and my partner doesn't appreciate the idea of me dismantling our furniture to use!! I bought 18mm pine boards at Bunnings but it is awful to work with. Can anyone give me recommendations for timber shops selling reasonably priced offcuts of hardwood and smaller scale pieces - say 300mmx300mmx15mm?????? I went to a reclaimed timber yard in Burleigh heads yesterday and they really did not have anything suitable and what they did have was quite expensive. Thanks in advance. Nano

    It depends on what your making. I make a lot of POS (point of sale) displays and things for the home like shoe racks or coat hooks etc. I’m only cutting 2D shapes that will slot together, so plywood is good for this, especially Multi Ply that has a nice edge. If you intend to make something similar then get a good quality Birch plywood called Multi ply BB grade.

    I’m pretty sure that they are not the place for hard wood, only ‘engineered ‘ wood like ply or laminated. You need to go to a timber yard like Greenmount Timber https://maps.google.com.au/maps?hl=e...m=CgIgAQ%3D%3D
    These are close to me but you can probably do a search for someone closer to you.
    I don’t mean to put you off.. when you get into CNC the idea of doing 3D is attractive. But I found the novelty where’s off and making things from simpler design methods becomes more appealing. Do the 3D thing, get it out of your system. I could be wrong and maybe you want to specialise in 3D products, but they take a hell of a lot of time to do nicely.

    Try for second hand timber from old houses. Old chook sheds are also a good source.
    My neighbour gets old stumps from tree loppers.
    Of course, some of all that is split and some old timber is punk wood, but if you can get enough of it free, ...

    Cheers
