Recycled Messmate Specialists in Melbourne
We have an extensive stock of re-milled, recycled Messmate timber as well as Messmate flooring and other pieces of furniture. We source Messmate from joists, beams, purlins and trusses. They are purged of any metal and resized using bandsaw and planer. What’s more, our floorboards are secret-nail profiled and end-matched.
Boasting a Janka hardness rating of 7.1, Messmate is a highly versatile yet durable timber that can be easily cut, worked, stained and glued. In fact, it’s quite pliable and an excellent choice for steam bending processes.
Ranging in shades from pale brown to light yellow, Messmate boasts durability and character while offering a stunning addition to any project. Messmate has a moderately coarse yet even texture and features interlocking grains. The timber typically features gum veins, whirled grain patterns, squiggly worm trails, pinholes and natural stains from wind, fire and flood.
