Fab Slabs was voted best outdoor display: Wood Expo

What’s New  July 2008

The Maleney Wood Show proved to be our most successful ever. We had our best ever range of quality hand crafted furniture in a variety of designs. All furniture was made from kiln dried timber slabs milled, dried and manufactured all by Fab Slabs Timber.

Our furniture included everything from (just to name a few)

  • stylish, modern, chunky looking dining tables made from kiln dried blue gum timber slabs – this was a real show piece which now has a new home in Brisbane.
  • a unique rustic 1800mm round burl table incorporating steel framed timber legs made by artist Steve Weis,
  • a camphor laurel bedroom setting with bed, bedside tables and a camphor chest,
  • a selection of wild and rustic, free formed mirrors, contemporary blue gum coffee tables with a blue gum and lemon scented gum chess board rebated into the slab
  • an array of awesome timber slab and burl tables with a tree root base
  • Hundreds of hand crafted timber slab breadboards  
  • Bars and bar stools all made from kiln dried hardwood timber slabs

All our furniture was finished with a minimum of 3 coats of Norglass, marine grade, UV rated, heat resistant poly.

What have we done this Month?  

This has been our busiest year ever. Most of our work these days comes through word of mouth as our reputation for kiln dried timber slabs, quality workmanship and reliable and friendly service has been our best advertising.

In the past few months we have completed dozens of amazing kitchen bench tops, shop counters, shelving, furniture, boardroom tables, bars and special orders for people wanting that unique piece of quality furniture and sold many kiln dried slabs to clients wanting to do all the hard work themselves.

The Next Month

We have a number of kitchen bench tops to do for kitchens in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Rockhampton, Melbourne, Sydney, Gympie and of course the Sunshine Coast. We have a range of furniture, solid timber bench tops and shelving for a new coffee roastery opening on the Sunshine Coast as well as a heirloom quality office, desk, a rustic letterbox and a modern dining table made kiln dried blue gum timber slabs.

YES –we are busy and we do have a short wait, BUT ...by milling, drying and manufacturing all of our timber slabs, furniture and bench tops we can guarantee dry timber slabs and a quality end product.
