Does Bunnings cut wood to size?

Re: Does Bunnings cut wood to size?

Hi, do you have any details about minimum distances to the edge for cutting panels? Also, what is the tolerance?

Re: Does Bunnings cut wood to size?

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.

Re: Does Bunnings cut wood to size?

Hi,

 

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?

 

Cheers

Warren

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @WarrenDB. It's wonderful that you've joined us and many thanks for your question about our timber cutting service.

 

Most of our stores offer a timber cutting service and all of those cut timber and timber sheet products. There are some exceptions for what they can cut. If you'd like to let us know the product you need cut and your approximate suburb, I'd be happy to let you know the closest store that can do that for you.

Wood Cutting

 I’m looking to create my own computer desk, and I was wondering if Bunnings would be able to cut this board down to 1900mm x 750mm. I would be getting this from the Rydalmere store in Sydney.

Re: Wood Cutting

I'm also trying to create a computer desk but I'm using this one... Bunnings don't have the equipment to cut this one down.... So was wondering if there's a cheap and safe way to get it cut to custom size...

Re: Wood Cutting

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @the_great_diy. It's wonderful that you've joined us and many thanks for your question.

 

You might like to discuss your cutting needs with a team member in-store. As @Manishmahajan has mentioned, generally, these panel type products are not suitable to be cut on our saws. It's a relatively easy task to cut down a board with a circular saw, and I'd be happy to assist as you do so yourself.

 

You should find these guides useful: 

 

 

 

 

Please let me know if you need further assistance, and we look forward to seeing your new computer desk once completed.

Re: Wood Cutting

It's great to have you join us @Manishmahajan. If you were looking for a budget solution to having this panel cut down, I would suggest the Ozito 185mm 1300W Corded Circular Saw. With this saw, the guides above and our assistance, you'll have your computer desk ready by the end of the weekend.

 

Please let us know if you have any questions. We're here to help.
