  • Rough Sawn Timber Boards - Now Available Online!

    We are still up and running - taking orders online and over the phone. To ensure the safety of our staff and customers, our premises are NOT open to the public at this time. We're working hard to adapt to current restrictions, and to provide our full product range. For our sawn kiln-dried timber customers, we have just launched a Sawn Timber Product Page. All our popular rough sawn timbers are now available to buy online by the cubic foot.

    Rough Sawn, Kiln-Dried Waney Edged Oak Boards Rough Sawn, Kiln-Dried Waney Edged Oak Boards (available online by the cubic foot)

    Our Sawn Waney Edged Oak is available in a range of standard thicknesses up to 3" (80mm). The boards are supplied in random widths, typically between 6" and 9" and random stock lengths. We also have our Square Edged Sawn Oak boards available in a 1" (27mm) thickness. (Please note: the widths and lengths supplied may vary depending on stock availability.)

    European Sawn Beech Timber Boards Sawn Beech Timber Boards (available online by the cubic foot)

    Our Canadian and American Sawn Timbers are also available online in a choice of 1" (25.4mm) and 2" (50.8mm) thicknesses. The boards are supplied in random widths, typically between 90mm and 150mm and in lengths around 3 metres. (Please note: the widths and lengths supplied may vary depending on stock availability.)

    Calibrated French Oak (available online by the cubic foot) Calibrated French Oak (available online by the cubic foot)

    Our popular Calibrated Oak Timber is also available in a choice of Rustic (QF4), Character (QF3) and Classic (QF2) grades. The boards are supplied in a 23mm thickness, in random widths (typically between 190mm-210mm). Calibrating is not the same as planing. The boards have had a very fast pre-plane to bring the timber to a regular size.

    All our sawn and calibrated timbers are carefully stored in our heated and acclimatised factory, giving an average moisture content of between 9-11% . The boards are sold by the cubic foot in random stock widths and random stock lengths. If you require timber in specific widths or with a planed finish, we would recommend our planed all round timber.

    For information about stock availability, or to discuss your own particular timber project, please contact us.
