Thor’s Hammer salvages structural timber from warehouses, bridges and wharfs which are perfect for use in pergolas and as garden features like screens and seats. Not only are the salvaged posts and beams extremely strong, they require minimal maintenance and age well.
The Cyclery, Braddon
We supplied around 12 ton of these sections of old stumps from the Q Stores demolition, they are Blackbutt 710mm long by 200x200mm section. We hit all of the outside faces of the timber with a wire brush to take off the loose splinters and dirt, keeping them looking recycled and rustic. Then we dressed the inside faces of the timbers so they stack and bolt together well.
Batemans Bay Marina Wharf Piers
The old wharf piers look great left round for feature posts, we can wire brush them to clean them up and reveal the timber.
These round piers can also be sawn back to a square. We usually leave some of the round showing on the corners of the post when we saw. They look fantastic used in pergolas or architectural beams in buildings and houses.
Grinding and Brushing
The grinding with a coarse sanding disc brings back the colour of the timber, and the brushing smooths the surface and removes splinters. This process brings out the rustic features in the timber, because the old bolt holes and checking remain dark.
Q Stores Beams
The ceiling feature beams in Akiba in Canberra's CBD. Dressed all round Blackbutt recycled from the Q Stores Woolstore in Alexandria.
300x300mm Bridge Timbers
These beams have had the bolts and nails removed which were sticking out, anything broken off at the surface is left in the timber. They can be used as is or we can grind & brush them to bring back the colour and create a smooth surface without splinters.
350x350mm Ground & Brushed Post
This large section post has been used as a structural feature.
Outside Classroom 200x200mm Posts & Beams
We supplied 200x200mm timbers re-sawn from old telegraph poles for this outside classroom at Majura Primary.
