Does Bunnings cut wood to size?

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

 

Here are some frequently asked questions about our timber cutting service to help Bunnings Workshop members. 

 

What type of cuts can be done at a Bunnings store?

 

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 MelaminePlywood and MDF.   

  

Does this service have a cost? 

 

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.

 

Is this service available at my local Bunnings?

 

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.

  

Can I bring my own piece of timber to be cut?

 

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

 

When is the best time to visit a store for timber cutting?

 

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.

  

What if I want to do the 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: 

 

  

What if I can't get my timber home? 

 

We 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.

 

Please feel free to let me know if you have further questions about our helpful timber cutting service.

Can an External door be Cut down and do you offer this service in store?

Hi Team,

We need to replace our back door.  We are hoping to use the below product:

Hume 2040 x 820 x 35mm External Door Duracote Flush X1 - Bunnings Australia

 

Our measurements are 2015 x 820mm - 25mm smaller in height.

Wondering if these doors are okay to be cut down, and if so, can this be done in store?

 

Bunnings team members rock!

Re: Can an External door be Cut down and do you offer this service in store?

Hello @Ilovebunnies

 

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's sensational to have you join us, and thank you for sharing your question about cutting down your external door.

 

I'm so sorry but cutting down doors at the store is not a service that we offer. However, you do have two options when it comes to resizing the door. The first is to go to the special orders desk and ask them how much it will cost to order the door in the size you've indicated. It will cost a little bit more, but the advantage is that it will be professionally built and is covered under the manufacturer's warranty. 

 

The second method is to cut the door yourself with a circular saw. However, the person doing it should have the experience and knowledge to re-assemble the door should they cut too much off the framing of the door. 

 

If you have any other questions we can help with, please let us know.

Custom wood cutting - angled cuts

Hi,

I am aware that bunnings offers a cutting service however, are they able to do angled cuts? I need a specific wood piece to be 60 degrees. My school doesn't have the capability of doing so as our table saw (or other equivalent equipment) can only do as much as 45 degrees.

Thanks

Re: Custom wood cutting - angled cuts

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @STARWARS. It's brilliant to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about our cutting service.

 

Unfortunately, our machines can only cut at 90 degrees to the board edges.

 

It sounds like you should be able to do these cuts with a circular saw. You might like to check out our Best Advice article on What circular saw do you recommend? Also, you should find this guide on How to use power saws useful.

 

Please let me know if you have more questions or need further assistance.

Re: Does Bunnings cut timber to size?

Hi there, I visited your Belmont WA store yesterday, wanting to get buy and get a 900x450x12mm piece of MDF cut down to 790x415mm. I got told by the young guy at the trade counter that they "only cut down large pieces of timber to fit in to cars and not project cuts." Is this correct?  Doesn't really seem right based on what's said in this post.

Re: Does Bunnings cut timber to size?

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @BucBuc. It's great to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about getting timber cut in-store.

 

I've contacted the Builder's Coordinator at Bunnings Belmont, and the team there can make those cuts for you. I'd suggest visiting the store at a quieter time, perhaps an evening or weekday.

 

Please let me know if you have further issues with having the timber cut.
