Owners, Clint and Nikki Decke are fourth generation farmers from the Manjimup district of Western Australia. They, along with their four children, still own and operate the family farm, “The Mistletoe”, located 11 kilometers east of Manjimup.
For the past fifteen years they have also operated a portable sawmill and slabbing operation for local land owners. This sideline has given them the opportunity to gather a large collection of very unique and beautiful hardwood and burl specimens. What started as a weekend hobby has now developed into their primary business.
Our shed doors are now open to make all of this unique hardwood available to the craftsmen around the world. All of our slabs and burls are available as “raw” timber or “surfaced”, ready for you to make that special piece of West Australian hardwood furniture.
“In the beginning (1992) our weekdays were spent running the farm, raising beef cattle and doing horticultural farming and our weekends were busy collecting wind fallen old growth trees. We would cut the logs to length and then into slabs and put the timbers away to air dry naturally. Today we still work the farm but our timbers are quickly becoming our primary focus.”
