Recycled Timber Factory is a family owned and run business based in Boolaroo in the Lake Macquarie region specialising in Recycled Australian Native Hardwoods which we mill onsite.
We offer an extensive range of recycled hardwood products from stunning custom made furniture pieces through to architectural posts and beams and furniture grade timbers for the D.I.Yer and tradesperson.
Our WokenWood range of custom designed and made furniture is lovingly handcrafted by our small team of furniture makers that all share a common passion for recycled timbers. The stock that we use in our furniture is primarily recycled railway and bridge timbers. The already beautiful colour and grain configurations, typical of Australian native hardwoods are enhanced by years of weathering. This coupled with the black staining, the result of tannins in the timber reacting with the metal bolts and dog spikes creates something that is totally unique. The milling and joining process of these timbers is very labour intensive and extremely hard on machinery but the end product is our justification. There is nothing quite like standing back and admiring a completed piece, the blood sweat and tears are quickly forgotten!
When working with timber that is full of imperfections detail is paramount, our attention to detail is second to none. We have a philosophy at RTF that perfection is something that is never really achieved but by striving for it in each and every piece we make ensures excellence. Perfection the action or process of improving something until it is faultless
" We have just bought some posts and beams for our verandah that we have been working on. Hard to believe the amount of character the timber has. The guys at RTF were friendly and very prompt with our order - we are wanting to get an outdoor table very soon and will be using these guys again 10/10. "
" Honestly speechless. I am SO incredibly happy with the transformation. Hans, Brandon, Luke & the team are exceptional professionals with great attention to detail. From beginning to end this has been a collaboration, with Hans going out of his way to understand our vision. Agreed timeframes were honoured, work completed in timely manner with little to no inconvenience to us. Do yourself a favour - don't waste your time looking for anybody else... These guys are the best! "
" We initially engaged RTF to create our kitchen bench made from recycled timber sleepers. Once we saw just how beautiful the wood really was, we added another bench for our bathroom and some shelving units for our lounge room. The finished product is exactly what we were looking for, with a warm wood feel that has real personality - unlike engineered timber benchtops and shelves. Thanks so much "
