We have a small range of Indigenous Wood Samples for collectors to purchase. These take time and care to craft and are not massed produced making them a special collectors item. 

We are not able to stock a sample of every New Zealand indigenous timber however we will endeavour to put up what we can as we work on customers orders and come across suitable pieces for samples.

If you are after something in particular, please contact us to see if we can source it for you.

We’d love to see you at our mill, but as drying and processing of the timber needs to happen at certain times it can be hard to give you the attention we would like.

If you would like to come out, please let us know in advance so we can assist you as best we can.
