This paper reports findings of surveys into the usage of, and attitudes to, rainforest cabinet timbers by cabinet-makers in Queensland, Australia. In determining policies to promote growing of native rainforest trees on private land, it is necessary to know the market requirements for various cabinet species. The species most in demand by cabinet-makers are identified in this paper. Suitability and availability are found to be important determinants of cabinet-maker demand for timber. The species being planted in north Queensland are not a close match with those predicted by cabinet-makers to be in greatest demand in the future.
