NSW COVID19 Restrictions Changes to trading September 2021.

To our valued customers. We are keeping everyone safe and your projects moving. We can offer contactless product viewing and collection but customers must contact us by phone so we can discuss customers need, confirm if we can help and then make an appointment for the customer to come to the store.

This process has been working just fine, however we have had to turn customers away who have not called to make an appointment.

Stay safe.

Presenting our local resin casters: Mark and Matt!

At The Hobbyist Timber Supply Store (THTSS) we love seeing what our Hobbyists have made. Mark and Matt are both local resin casters who regularly visit THTSS to purchase timber and resin for their upcoming projects.

These projects include river tables, chopping boards and even chess boards! Scroll to see their photos.

Urban Salvage & Sustainability

At The Hobbyist Timber Supply Store we are big advocates of sustainability. For the past 30 years timber milling and urban salvage has been a big part of our operations.

Working alongside local arborists, we remove trees which have been authorised for council removal including fallen, storm damaged or trees impacting new developments, save them from the chipper and mill them into furniture grade timbers.
