  • Stunning Loft Conversion using British Hardwoods Timber

    A loyal customer of ours has recently used our planed all round oak timber to stunning effect in his unique loft design project. The project has now been shortlisted for a prestigious design award, and our oak battens feature in every one of the photos he submitted!

    Woodside Loft is a residential loft conversion to what was originally a 1930s three-bedroom semi-detached house. The pairing of the oak timber flooring with the planed oak vertical battens has created an organic/modern-retro feature. We love his design ideas.

    Our customer is up against some really big design agencies, so we’d really like to help him win. (David vs Goliath!).

    The public vote closes in just over a week, so please take a look at what he’s created and, if you like it, then please do vote for him.

    Good luck Rob!

  • Resin River Tables - Two Customer Projects

    We love to receive photographs from our customers of the wonderful things they have made from timber we supply them. Below are two unique examples of resin river tables from two very talented customers.

    We love the way Karl has created the appearance of a rocky headland by using the burr of the elm contrasted with a striking neon blue resin. The fleck in the resin creates the appearance of a moving body of water - absolutely stunning.

    For the Star Wars fans among you, Adi Barber has created a unique live edge English elm coffee table. The table is inlaid with a glow in the dark Millennium Falcon. We love its quirky design and the partnering of natural timber with a contemporary motif.

    We'll soon be featuring another of Adi's wonderful creations - a Burr Elm Vertical Record Player - so watch this space!

    For the time being our timber shop is sadly not open to the public. We hope to upload some specially selected boards to our online shop just as soon as we can. Keep an eye on our social media channels for updates.

  • Creativity at Christmas

    Amongst the pre-Christmas rush at British Hardwoods, Tony has been hard at work with his own specialist project. Tony has spent the last couple of days creating a very organic looking king-sized oak bed frame.

    The corner posts have been created from air dried oak beams and fixed together with draw peg mortise and tenon joints. The headboard has been produced from Waney Edge English Oak with the remaining pieces of the bed made from hand-planed from kiln-dried French Oak.

    It looks to be a very sturdy frame, I'm sure Tony will test it over Christmas to see how well it holds.
