Quick Overview

A selection pack of 12 thin wood lamellas in European Oak. The packs consist of boards which are set aside during initial set-up of our band saw. The timber is a character grade, therefore, some boards will contain open knot holes, some figuring and scatterings of pip, whilst other boards may be clean with few knots.


Average board width 195mm in random thicknesses between 2mm and 4mm. Typical board length 1.2m.


It is usual for the thin wood boards to display a slight curvature across the width due to the natural movement of the timber.


IMPORTANT:
As these packs contain trial pieces they are priced accordingly. Each pack will contain a good spread of usable timber, however, some boards (and parts of boards) will contain defects such as machining marks, rough bark edges and large open knot holes.

Description

Details

Our thin European Oak wood is sourced from FSC certified saw mills in France. 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. Rays and growth rings show an attractive figuring ("silver grain") when quarter sawn.

Typical Uses
Thin oak timber is often used for decorative veneers, model making, marquetry, intarsia, luthiery, furniture restoration and crafts.

Highly recommended
I was very pleased with the price, particularly at the discounted rate. Most of the wood panels had a really nice finish. However some had cracks and saw burns/scuffs. However, due to the exceptionally low price and 95% of the wood being unmarked it was excellent value for money.

Ideal thin hardwood
These oak lamella packs are the exact thing I needed to rebuild the drawers and back of a Georgian bureau. Brilliant service, quality & delivery! Please keep it up - you're a dying breed.

Good variety
These packs are great. Really good variety of thickness. As British Hardwoods point out, there are small areas on a few of the pieces that are a bit dicky (generally on the really thin strips). Will be back for more in the future.
