Recycled Timber Furniture

To conserve & preserve our ecological future, Designwood aims to use recycled timber from historic locations, old railway sleepers & other applications. This reduces landfill & waste. Species such as Grey Ironbark, Spotted Gum, Blackbutt and Tallowood are the perfect recycled timber materials for your new pieces. 


Recycled Timber Specialists

Designwood ethically sources timber and rejuvenates timber into new life. We reclaim our timber from old bridges, railway sleepers, halls, schools and buildings. Our recycled timber can be milled, sawn or transformed into any sizes you like. Whether you want recycled timber furniture or a feature post – we can deliver. 

Recycled Railway Sleepers Transformed Into Furniture

We have an inhouse wood workshop, where we can create your dream into a reality. Our woodworkers have made recycled timber products for homes and businesses all over the Hunter Valley, Newcastle and Lake Macquarie. We even have an inhouse draftsman who can design, draw and bring your recycled timber product to life. As Newcastle’s premier recycled timber yard, when purchasing from Designwood, you are purchasing timber that is sustainable and has been ethically sourced. Our stock is expansive and vast – we have many different species of timbers with various ages, cuts, sizes and finishes. 

Case Study: Hunter Valley Bridge Breathes New Life

Designwood sourced a timber bridge from the Upper Hunter Valley (near Muswellbrook). We then transported this bridge timber to our Boolaroo showroom – meticulously reconditioning the timber bridge to create large feature posts for a commercial client. 

The result? A commercial space has been transformed, enabling this timber to be used in a new light.
