If you require set lengths of timber or non-standard sizes, please contact our Sales Office who will be happy to advise you, as there is often wastage to account for with specific cutting lists.

Description

Details

Our European Oak timber is sourced from France and planed to order in our factory here in Yorkshire. The heartwood varies from light tan to biscuit or deep brown, with distinct bands of earlywood and latewood. The grain is usually straight, but irregular or cross grain can occur including some small knots. Rays and growth rings show an attractive figuring ("silver grain") when quarter sawn.

Properties
A fairly hard, heavy and dense hardwood, with high crushing and bending strength, low stiffness and resistance to shock loads. Preboring is advised for nailing and screwing, and a reduced planing angle is advised for irregular or cross-grained stock. Oak timber turns satisfactorily, is good for gluing, painting, sanding, staining and varnishing and will take high polish. European oak can be darkened by fuming with ammonia. Due to tannins present in the timber, oak wood will react with ferrous metals when wet. Select non-ferrous (brass or stainless steel) fixings where possible.

Durability
Extremely durable.

Typical Uses
Oak timber is often used for furniture and cabinetmaking, quality joinery including church pews and pulpits, office furniture, kitchen cabinets, flooring (including parquet), coffins, boats and harbour work, truck bodies, cooperage for wines, cognac and beer. Planed oak timber is sliced for decorative veneers and rotary-cut to make plywood.

Oak
Have ordered from British Hardwood on several occasions and always very happy with the product. Our own projects have inspired others to order as well. Really happy with the finished article. Great look and has earned many compliments. Always really well packaged and extremely quick in fulfilling the order.

Excellent quality
The timber order arrived on time and was well packaged and protected. I was very impressed with the quality of both the timber and the planing of it. It's a shame that the timber lengths are random as I had to order a lot more than I needed to ensure I could cut to the lengths I wanted. I am now left with a lot of timber that I don't immediately need. Having said this, I did investigate other suppliers who cut to specific sizes, but it actually worked out to be more expensive in the long run, so overall the timber from British Hardwoods turned out to be better value.

It's ok
Ordered a fair bit of oak it is very nice but there was one length I wasn't happy with, had hair line cracks all over it, the sad bit was it had a lovely grain to it but couldn't use it as it's for a customer. Other than that it was very nice but did take its time to be delivered.

Excellent
I have used you 5 or 6 times over the last 3 years and have always found that you deliver when you say you will, the quality of the product is excellent and the price is great. I'm a small business joiner and need hardwood infrequently but will continue to use you for future projects.

Very happy
I've shopped here twice now. I can't fault what I've been sent and don't have much to compare it against in terms of joinery experience. The ash and oak seems really well finished and top quality. I'll certainly be back if I need more. It's great to be able to specify what is needed and to have it arrive some 2-3 weeks later.

What's not to like
Precisely machined needing just light finish with scraper and service that could not be faulted even to agreeing to take back what I'd stupidly over-ordered!

Very satisfied
I bought 8 meters of planed all round European oak and was very satisfied with both the quality of the product and the delivery service. Once I have finished my current project I will definitely buy more wood from British Hardwoods for the next project.

Excellent quality, reasonable value, poor delivery
You cannot fault the quality of this product or the expert packing, but this is reflected in the very high price. The website does not make clear what lengths are available for each product, as such, ordering 3M might get you a 2M and 1M length - something I would check next time! Main problem is the delivery, for even what I would call standard, it's 2 weeks.

Worth the wait
I purchased 9 metres x 175 mm x 19mm European oak. The product was delivered on time virtually to the hour. Packaging was excellent. The oak was just the job for the furniture I had planned to make. I wasn't disappointed and will definitely be using British Hardwoods again. Oak is expensive but this was very competitive. Altogether a good experience and worth the wait.

Good in parts
As a small scale amateur furniture maker my first time buying here has not been a total success. Yes the timber is mostly well-finished, arrived well protected, and on the agreed days (I had to call to arrange the date), but several pieces have defects (knots, planed with a blunt blade or against the grain), and I have so far found 1 piece that is unusably bowed. But the most difficult to deal with has been knowing how much to buy. When I called before ordering I was told that the lengths would all be longer than my order to accommodate my cutting list. In the event, some of my order was cut to my cutting list, some was slightly over length, but a cool 4m was not supplied at all. Until I phoned to point out the omission. Fortunately, anticipating errors on my part, I had ordered some oversize planks from which to cut the pieces I now need to replace the unusable pieces. Let's hope there is enough.

(Our reply: We are sorry to hear that your experience with us was not what you expected it to be - it can sometimes be challenging when requesting specific lengths on a natural (and therefore random) product such as timber. We hope that the replacement pieces that we sent straight out to you enabled you to finish your project successfully. We wish you every success with your furniture making and hope to be able to assist you in the future.)

True, straight and flat timber
I make furniture but, as an amateur, I work slowly and my output is small. I have previously found timber suppliers expensive for small orders and costly for carriage. I approached British Hardwoods with apprehension but I found them quite willing to accept small orders. I ordered 4 metres of oak 146 by 19 mm. It arrived quickly (by TNT). The protection and wrapping were superb and the timber was true, straight and flat with no blemishes. The planing left only a minimum of attention before finishing. I recommend this firm to any woodworker.
