Sugar gum for end frames

timber drying rack

We just got a new load of plantation sugar gum for the end frames of our drying rack. Now, 14 holes per end frame and 234 end frames… thats 3276 holes to drill!

We worked with Smartimbers to use off-cuts from their processes, we only need short and narrow pieces for the end frames. The sugar gum is from farm windrows planted in Victorias Western districts. The mature trees are coppiced for firewood and now bigger logs are milled for building timber – cladding, flooring and decking. It’s an amazingly strong (F27) and durable (class 1) timber. It’s cut at a sustainable rate so we’ll be able to continue using this excellent timber.
