Recycled Timber Furniture – Rabbit Trap Timber

Rabbit Trap Timber makes furniture from recycled timber. They make furniture to last with sustainability in mind, furniture that is robust and will last a life time.

They say they are breathing new life back into the timber. Their furniture is rustic yet has a modern edge to it. With such an amazing product we asked them a few questions –

Who is behind Rabbit Trap Timber?

Robert (Rabs) and Justine Taylor (Husband and Wife team) are behind Rabbit Trap Timber.

Where does their timber come from? 

Beautifully aged timber is sourced from historical buildings, old Sydney wharfs, bridges, demolition sites, local farmhouses, e.g. floorboards.

Examples include – in Sydney: The Grace Bros building, The Mosman Wharf, old wool stores. In Country NSW: timber bridges in Young, The Gerringong Railway Station.

Why recycled timber?

Its sustainable and ethical, aged timber has so much more character than freshly cut wood – and is friendlier to the environment. We tread lightly on the earth.

Clients along with Rabs hand choose their timber, it’s bespoke, unique and tells its own story.

With your new direction into commercial, where do you see the business going?

We are producing en masse for larger projects now, e.g. our brand is building into retail shop fit-outs and merchandising projects. As we branch out to the commercial side, we are working more with architects and interior designers, mostly on hospitality and retail endeavours which is very exciting! We see commercial venues wanting a space to express themselves through bespoke fit-outs, specifically made of handcrafted timber materials they choose, so we see ourselves fulfilling that gap. Also in our new workspace, we’ll conduct workshops, people can see how our handcrafted timber furniture is made, have a coffee and shop for homewares and local treasures. We love what we do.
