Is this service available at my local Bunnings?

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?
Visting 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.
I need to have my timber delivered, but can it be cut as well?
If you contact our helpful D.I.Y. Hotline, they will take details of the cuts required and arrange for an order to be processed at your local store for delivery.
Please feel free to let me know if you have further questions about our helpful timber cutting service.
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @koshie. It's fantastic that you've joined us and many thanks for your question.
Were these sleepers that you already have or that you will be purchasing from a store? Because of the many variables associated with timber products, we can only cut products purchased from our stores.
I'll reach out via PM to get further details on your local store to verify that they can cut sleepers there.

Internal doors have their outside skins held in place with glue and pin nails, making them unsuitable to be cut on our saws. When cutting doors down yourself, remember there is only so much of the solid pine frame that can be removed before you hit the honeycomb. If you need to cut the door down significantly, you can either take half the amount off the top and the other off the bottom or move the bottom pine frame further up the door and re-insert it.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need further assistance.
Hi, do you have any details about minimum distances to the edge for cutting panels? Also, what is the tolerance?
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @askvictor. It's fantastic to have you join us, and many thanks for your question.
There is a minimum cut width on our saws of 300mm. For more information about the specific cuts that can be performed, it's best to have a chat with a helpful team member at your local store. They'll be happy to show you how to get the best usage out of your selected boards.
We like to accommodate for a tolerance of plus or minus 5mm. However, you'll find in most cases that the cuts will be well within these tolerances.
What are you building? I trust our community members would love to follow along with your project.
Please let me know if you need further assistance or have questions.
Hi, can Bunnings cut a outdoor timber framing length (purchased there) into a degree angle like the attached photo? Thanks
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @ehunter123. It's wonderful to have you join us and many thanks for your question about our cutting service.
Unfortunately, that type of cut would require a saw that can rip timber down the middle. Our stores are equipped with docking saws that crosscut the timber. The easiest way to achieve that style of cut would be on a table saw or with a circular saw if it didn't need to be precise.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
I've been looking under store details and services for Bunnings stores in the inner Melbourne area and can't find any that say they cut timber/sheets? I know I did it somewhere reasonably close by several years ago but I can't for the life of me remember where. Does it go by a particular name in the details?
