TouchWood is a versatile tongue and groove panelling product.

TouchWood has been created to make the warmth and beauty of natural timbers accessible to a wider range of interior designs and budgets.

Looks good. Feels good. Does good.

Using natural materials in design and décor is proven to have a positive effect on wellbeing. Known as biophilic design, it reconnects people with nature, can help reduce stress and improve our emotional state. TouchWood veneer panelling is a way to bring native wood within everyone’s reach, in more ways than one.


Britton Timbers sources all of its Tasmanian timber from the sustainably-managed and PEFC certified temperate forests of the north-west region of the state.

Britton Timbers is Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC-C113479) Chain of Custody certified for its range of imported timbers from Scientific Certification Systems – one of the world’s leading FSC® certifiers.

Sustainability is also achieved through compliance with the provisions of the Forest Practices Code and the Tasmanian Forests Agreement (TFA). “Any customer buying products from Britton Timbers or products manufactured from timber supplied by Britton Timbers and sourced from Tasmania’s public native forests, can do so in the full confidence that it is produced in accordance with the TFA”.

The 9mm moisture resistant MDF board backing (in natural or black) with Blackwood or Tasmanian Oak veneer face gives the illusion of solid timber VJ panelling. And the good stuff doesn’t end there. It is also a sustainable product that utilises native timber veneers from PEFC certified forests.

Saving money and time on both materials and installation, TouchWood can be used to transform an existing space by fixing it directly onto plasterboard or specified in new projects at scale.

Perfect for off-the-wall design.

Designers don’t limit their imagination to only using TouchWood as a wall panelling. By combining their creativity and TouchWood’s easy installation and effortlessly versatile ergonomics, they use it to clad ceilings, bedheads, cupboards and counterfronts.

It is equally at home fixed vertically or horizontally; in modern interiors or more traditional settings and can be left uncoated or finished with wax, oil or polyurethane in matt, gloss or satin finish.
