 Many customers ask us for quarter sawn planks.  Unfortunately, the trees are not sawn so as to make these available.  In the smaller sections, such as 19x19 and 31x31, it is just a matter of turning the piece the right way.  If quarter sawn is important, perhaps laminating a number of smaller pieces might make up a piece with the desired properties.

This timber comes from government owned plantations in Southern Queensland.  Unfortunately, the extent of the demand was not completely forseen 40 years ago so that the logs are often smaller than optimum.
