The first semi load of poles arrived yesterday from the demolition of the Nowra Sawmill.
The rooves of the old sawmill sheds were built out of round logs 200-300mm in diameter and up to 12m long!
The poles have gone really dark with age, but once we brush them back you will see the beautiful coastal hardwoods that lie underneath their rough exterior.
There are probably a couple of species in this demolition including Ironbark and Blackbutt both super dense and durable.
These would be great for an unusual pergola or feature beams, we can either supply them round as is, brushed back or cut into square beams 150mm x 150mm or 200 x 200mm.
The demolition company was contracted by the owner of the mill to destroy all the sawmill machinery which was a bit of a shame. Thor’s Hammer got to the timber just in time, it will live to see another day as an awesome feature in someone’s home!
