  • We're Opening Again From Monday!

    We are very pleased to announce that we will be re-opening our premises from Monday 12th April. We look forward to welcoming everyone back and to seeing all of you again.

    From Monday, we will be operating our regular opening hours:

    Monday to Thursday: 8.00am – 5.00pm

    Friday: 8.00am – 4.00pm

    Saturday: 8.00am – 12 noon

    We have been working hard during the recent lockdown to make our premises as safe as possible for everyone.

    Native Timber Shop

    Our Timber Shop has had an upgrade to include a beautiful new native elm sales counter. We have increased the space around our display boards, so that safe distances can be maintained.

    Entry is as normal, through the Timber Shop glass door. We have provided hand sanitiser for you as you enter the shop. We are well stocked with plenty of lovely native boards, ready and waiting for you to browse through.

    Rough Sawn Timber

    If you require rough sawn timber from the racks, please come into the Timber Shop rather than the Flooring Showroom. A member of our team will lift down the timber of your choice and leave you to browse through the pack at your convenience.

    Flooring Showroom

    Please come in through the main glass door to the left as you face the building. We have provided hand sanitiser for you as you come in. Our Flooring Showroom is straight to your left. Please come in and press the buzzer on the counter (also to your left). A member of our team will come to assist you.

    Trade Counter Sales

    For ancillary products (cleaning products/finishes/fixings, etc.), please come into our Flooring Showroom, through the main glass door to the left as you face the building. We have provided hand sanitiser for you as you come in. Come into the Flooring Showroom straight to your left and press the buzzer on the counter (also to your left). A member of our team will come to assist you.

    You may prefer to continue use our Click and Collect service to minimise potential wait times. All of our ancillary products can now be ordered ahead of time from our online shop. Please contact us if you can’t find the particular product you are looking for, or if you would like advice about the best products to use for your project.

    Order Collection

    Please call the Sales Office on 01535 637755 when you arrive to collect your order. A member of our team will bring your order out to you.

    We look forward to seeing you all again from Monday. If you have any queries at all prior to your visit, please contact us – we’d be very happy to help.

  • Burr & Brrrr! - Log Blog #2

    On the 8th of February we started cross cutting our frozen Burr and Brown Oak logs to reveal their inner beauty.

    Some burr and pip just sits on the surface like a cow pat, these however went right into the heart of the log.

    Here are some photos of the Pippy Brown Oak. The brown is caused by the Beefsteak Fungus, one of the many edible fungi that grow on wood. The fungus causes a myriad of distinctive tiger striping throughout the wood.

    The Burr Oak was cut at 56mm thick and made into Boules which will be air dried indoors initially for a year before kilning.

    The Boules are stored at high level with the benefit of good air flow from our wood fired factory heating.
