Whereabouts of the Wood Slab guy

By FlippedOut 16 June 2009 19

For the last few years there was a guy that sold rough sawn wood slabs off the back of a flatbed truck on the side of the road.

He’s moved locations a number of times but I haven’t seen him recently, anyone know his whereabouts? Or contact details?

I need some slabs for a coffee table i’m building. Thanks

I thought it was bit of a strange thing to be selling by the roadside, given that it’s not really a product you can normally chuck straight in the back of your car and drive off. He’s been on Sulwood Drive most days for the last couple of months, not sure if he stays there all day, but normally there in the mornings.

He’s back in Canberra and located at the bottom of Bindubi Street in Cook until Sunday.

Exactly what are wood slabs? Dressed timber, off-cuts, the raw product, and in what sort of sizes?

He was on Sulwood Drive at Kambah this morning, on the dirt within view of the roundabout at Athllon, where the fruit/flower sellers usually set up.

I drove past at about 7.20am and had a good old rubberneck because it wasn’t something i had seen sold on the side of the road before!

Postalgeek said :

I saw a purveyor of fine slabs at Molonglo Reach off Morshead Rd numberous times this earlier this year, but not lately. Must be his summer residence.

Yes he told me that he was hit by the big storm then, and one big slab was blown 20m away!

he had some very fine pieces of rosewood – need to remember to see him after we move house.

He was on Horse Park Drive, and said he was going to come back every fortnight. But it was a bitterly cold day and he never came back that I saw.

For the last few weeks he has been on Sulwood Drive near Athllon Drive on the Kambah side.
