Can you buy wood panels from bunnings cut to custom size? (for building cabinets/shelves in a bathroom, so ideally a laminate or melamine....
Many Bunnings stores offer timber cutting. On the Bunnings website, make sure you have selected your nearest store, then click on the name of your store on the top left of the screen. This will take you to your store's information page, which includes details on what services they offer. For timber cutting, I would just recommend that you try to visit at a quiet time (not weekends or public holidays).
Hope that helps,
I've used lots of plywood at 1200 x 2400 from Bunnings Mt Barker, where they have a panel saw, and they have always been happy to cut it to size for me - I can't even move a panel that big on my own! I believe you have to normally pay $1 per cut. So, for a kitchen cabinet, you could, for example, divide a large sheet of MDF, plywood or melamine into four strips of 1200 x 600, etc. There are also many products for kitchen cabinetry that are available at the right, standard sizes, but the larger the piece you buy, the cheaper it works out.

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @JustinS1. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question.
It's great to see you've already received a prompt and helpful response from @Brad. He's correct that our saws can dock timber to length and put straight cuts in panels.
Have you considered a jigsaw for your project? One would certainly allow you to create a variety of intricate cuts, including curves and circular shapes.
Please let me know if you need further information or had questions.
Would the cut shop resaw a standard 18mm deep piece of tassie oak to 9mm.
I.e. cut it in half long ways?
That would be ripping the timber lengthways. Our saws are only capable of docking, which is cutting something to length. To clarify, this is a service in-store for our products to get them home. If you are having trouble fitting something in your car, then we'll gladly cut it down to length for you.
You might be interested in having a look to see if there are any Men's Sheds in your area. I'm sure they would be happy to give you a hand for a minimal cost.
