  • One Big Oak Log from Kendal

    You could not choose a better day for a trip out to Kendal, situated within the beautiful area of the Lake District. Yesterday, Tony and Jason paid a visit to a local who had an oak log that needed to be shifted. They turned up in the morning, armed with the an axe, chainsaw and the British Hardwoods truck ready for job.

    The log measures at 4 metres long by 1.2 metres wide (at its' widest part). It took a bit of work to try and plank the log meticulously to 4" thick, with the chainsaw having its' own mind during the task at one point sawing from 4" to about 6" thick - but we will be re-milling one of the planks to ensure it's down to 4" thick.

    They finished with 5 solid planks, that will be air dried for at least a year within the British Hardwoods factory and then finished off in the kiln. The planks look impressive, very stately-like, solid and clean.

  • New Batch of Timber Ready from the Kiln

    We are all so very excited with the recent opening of our 44ft kiln that has carefully dried out our locally sourced hardwood timbers since 3rd March. The load consists of Oak, Lime, Yew, Elm and one that we're all keen to see, Burr Horse Chestnut (also known as the 'Conker'). There are boards, round slices, beams and planks to choose from, all with a moisture content between 8-10%.
