With over 35 years experience in Western Australia’s demolition and timber industry, our founder and Director Terry Miskimmin has brought Fremantle Timber Traders to the front of the State’s recycled timber industry - in line with responsible resource conservation criteria, specialising in the selection of quality recycled timbers recovered from old colonial houses, schools, buildings and hotels, as well as from older commercial sites such as the old Wool Stores, around Perth and rural WA.
Years of hard work to salvage and recycle this precious resource has led to a collection of wood that's breathtakingly beautiful and ready for application on those unique projects. With the use of special tools designed by Terry, Fremantle Timber Traders has been able to recover precious hardwood timber with the least possible damage, reclaiming wood that was originally milled between 50 – 150 years ago and has been dried with age, rather than kiln-dried.
This early selection timber is vastly superior in quality, compared with recently milled timber, as the colour, grain and texture of the wood has come about naturally over time. The character and patina simply cannot be matched! Our timber is de-nailed and docked to bring you the cleanest recycled timber possible. During this processing, strict quality control is enforced to ensure job specifications are met. All cleaned, recycled timber can be purchased as is or re-milled from larger section boards to suite individual projects specifications.
Perhaps the most outstanding feature of reclaimed, recycled timber is often in its history – every piece comes with a story to tell and, in most instances, Terry will be able to advise you as to where it has come from and what it was originally used for, thus adding uniqueness and character to your project.
Australian grown hardwoods are some of the best in the world, unsurpassed in beauty, strength and durability. Many of the hardwood timbers we sell are becoming increasingly scarce.
