  • Timber Shop Open Day - Sat 2 Feb

    If you missed us at the North of England Woodworking Show, then come and see us at our Timber Shop Open Day on Saturday, 2nd February 2019 at 10am to 4pm.

    We will have more wood than you can shake a stick at with the sale of our Native, European, American and Canadian hardwood timber stocks. We will have plenty of rough sawn, planed and calibrated boards, blanks, slices, thin wood, off cuts, along with specially selected boards that you will not want to pass up.

    There will be craft makers showcasing and selling their wares, woodworking and tool demonstrations, taster sessions of our woodworking course led by Chris Tribe and your chance to meet and see in action The Blind Woodturner.

    We look forward to seeing you all at our event!

  • 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.
