Does Bunnings cut timber to size?

BunningsTimber.jpegMany Bunnings stores offer a timber cutting service to help you get your wood home and get started on your project.


Bunnings stores typically have two types of saws for timber cutting. 



  • Panel saw – used to cut large sheet materials into smaller rectangular sections and pieces. The machine is capable of both horizontal and vertical cuts on most of our board products. Some examples of products that can be cut using a panel saw include Melamine, Plywood and MDF.  


Bunnings stores may charge a small fee for timber cutting. The price is:

  • Timber docking - First two cuts are free, and 50 cents per additional cut
  • Panels and sheeting - First cut is free and $1 per additional cut.


You can check whether the timber cutting service is available at a nearby store by visiting the Bunnings website. Here’s how: 

  • Mobile device - Select your nearest store and then click on your store's name on the top left of the screen. This will take you to your store's information page, including details about what services they offer
  • Desktop computer - Type the nearest store's name in the change store drop-down and then click on store details. This will take you to your store's information page, including details on what services they offer.


Due to the many variables associated with timber products, we can only cut products purchased from our stores.


Visiting at a quieter time will ensure faster service. It's best to avoid weekends and public holidays as many other D.I.Y. enthusiasts will also be looking to build their own projects.


If you want to do your own cutting at home, knowing what saw to use and how to use it is the key to success. Here are some useful guides to get you started:



We also offer a number of options to get your products home safely. You can use our free courtesy trailer for up to two hours. If you need more time you can also hire a trailer, a ute or a van to suit your needs. We also offer a comprehensive delivery service to assist you in getting your purchases home. Most stores offer same day or next day service. Please contact your nearest store for details.
