  • Spruce up your wood flooring this Christmas

    The festive season is fast approaching, a great time for visiting and receiving guests and catching up with friends and relatives. Cleaning and protecting your hardwood floor against the rigours of extra footfall during the Christmas period has never been easier. Here are a few simple tips to help keep your wood floor looking beautiful throughout this busy time.

    Regularly sweep your wooden floor with a soft brush, small particles of grit and stones, which can be brought in on the soles of visitor's feet, can abrade and scratch the floor's surface. An Osmo Opti-Set Mop is a superb product for cleaning, dry mopping and polishing your wood flooring. The green fluffy dust mop, used dry, is great for picking up tiny particles of dust and grit.

    Wood floors finished with hardwax oil can be given a pre-Christmas clean with Osmo Wash and Care. A couple of capfulls of this mild detergent, diluted in warm water, will clean the the floor effectively whilst feeding and replenishing the oiled surface.

  • A great success at the Woodworking Show

    A number of the British Hardwoods team attended the annual North of England Woodworking show in Harrogate last weekend which proved a great success. Great fun was had by all in a very busy show hall. Hundreds braved the cold weather and packed car parks to browse the stalls ranging from power tools to beautifully crafted furniture and wood carvings.

    The British Hardwoods stand was very popular amongst woodworkers, hobbyists and people looking for something a little out of the ordinary with our spectacular range of our own kiln-dried native hardwoods.

    Thanks to all who attended and stopped by for a chat and a pre-Christmas purchase. We still have lots of English Pippy Oak and some of our beautiful selected Yew boards on sale here at our factory, so you are more than welcome to pop in and take a look. We also hope to have some Scottish Elm, Austrian Walnut and some Lime very shortly.
