Just Fun

  • The Force of Pedal Power

    British Hardwoods is fortunate enough to be located near one of the country's most idyllic and popular areas for cycling. It's no wonder that since the visit from the Tour de France teams in 2014, it became an official event in the UCI Europe Tour, known as the Tour de Yorkshire.

    At British Hardwoods, we are proud to have a quarter of our staff cycling to work, making their journey carbon neutral and increasing their fitness levels in the process. We've even had our own member of staff, Nigel, taking on a recent cycling event for charity that covers areas of the Tour de Yorkshire.

    Sustainability has always been a key driving force of British Hardwoods' ethical approach to manufacturing and also promote this value within the working environment, which is why the company is happy to sponsor employees who wish to take part in the government Cycle to Work initiative.

  • Jewellery Creations by Esoteric London

    We always appreciate it when our customers take the time to send us photos of the lovely products they create from the timber we supply to them. So, with Valentine's Day next week, it only seems right that we share these gorgeous jewellery creations, made by Esoteric London, who design and make all their pieces in their South-East London studio - the pieces are bold and bright and they will certainly make a statement on that special day.

    Here are a few words about the company and the products that they make.

    Esoteric London

    "Esoteric London is a cutting edge independent design label specialising in outrageously creative jewellery and accessories for the bold and fearless. We’ve been proudly sparkling since 2012, when London College of Fashion graduate, Chloe Hope King, wanted to create something fresh reflecting her love for hands on design and manufacture.

    Bold and bright, Esoteric London’s jewels are designed for those who have something to say. Our pieces are a statement, and we want to help you make yours. All our collections are created in-house, from the initial ideas to the finished products; jewels are designed and manufactured in our South-East London studio by an experienced and innovative designer and her team. We use sustainable, natural and locally sourced materials where possible to create our products using a combination of traditional methods and modern technology. Our favourite materials are speciality acrylics, hand cast resin, precious metals, exotic woods and intricately laser cut leathers."

  • Merry Christmas & Happy New Year From All At British Hardwoods

    As another successful year at British Hardwoods draws to a close we would like to thank you, our valued customers, for your continued support over the last 12 months.

    We have seen further expansion at our premises in Yorkshire over the past year, with additional racking installed to house our growing stocks of native timbers. We have also recently transformed an area of unused office space into a fully equipped teaching area for woodworking classes to accommodate our soon-to-open School of Woodwork, led by local tutor Chris Tribe. Our recently developed shop of selected wood boards has too been a hit with all who have been in for a browse. Just some of the many changes at British Hardwoods in 2017.

    In the New Year we look forward to welcoming three new members to the British Hardwoods team with Nigel and JoJo joining us in the office and Peter taking up a role in our saw milling and native hardwood supplies within the factory.

    After such a hard-working year of machining and manufacturing the British Hardwoods team will take a well-earned break from lunch time on Friday 22nd December and re-open at 8:00am on Tuesday 2nd January. We wish you all a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!
