RECYCLED HARDWOOD

Using Recycled Hardwood is the origin of Mark Tuckey and for many years we only made furniture with Recycled timbers. This timber is packed full of character. Salvaged from demolished buildings, our recycled Hardwood is a range of Australian Eucalyptus available in up to 60mm thick (very rare, but we have some). Expect to see gum veins, ambrosia beetle marks, dark saplines, pinholes, squiggly markings across golden to brown tones. Finished in oil to emphasise the timbers features. Expect to see nail holes and bolt holes which we fill or plug.

BLACKBUTT

Blackbutt is a strong durable eucalyptus hardwood that grows along the East Coast of Australia. The base of the tree is covered in a rough thick bark that chars black in a fire, hence the name “blackbutt”. It’s a rich colour timber in a variety of tones depending upon its source’s latitude and elevation. Clean straight grain and an even texture, the occasional distinctive dark sap lines appear. We use a hard wax oil to finish this timber.

RECYCLED OREGON

Originally imported from North America, as ballast on ships, we have repurposed this timber from Australian buildings. Being a soft timber, the hardest of all the soft woods, our recycled Oregon often holds the patina of it’s long history.  Expect to see nail holes and bolt holes which we fill or plug. Rich in tone, different treatments lighten the colour of the timber. Grain marks vary from tight and straight, to large swirls.
