  • Timber Sale and Open Day - Saturday 8th February

    Happy New Year to you all! After our lovely break at Christmas we are now well into the preparations for our upcoming Timber Shop Sale and Open Day. The show will be held on Saturday 8th February and promises to be the biggest and best yet.

    We're thrilled that the inspirational Chris Fisher "The Blind Woodturner" has managed to squeeze us in to his busy schedule and will be joining us on the day. Chris lost his sight in 2008 and took up woodturning. Chris now travels around the UK demonstrating his skills and inspiring others to show them that anything is possible.

    If you feel inspired by Chris, there will be local woodturning groups on hand giving demonstrations of their woodturning skills. They're a friendly group of people brought together by their combined love of wood - and would be very happy to chat and offer advice.

    There will also be plenty of craft makers stalls, pyrography demonstrations, woodworkers suppliesClassic Hand Tools and of course our very popular Timber Shop Sale.

    Refreshments will be available on the day, along with lovely homemade Chilli (veggie option available) served by Sam Conroy who is raising funds for his Tanzania Outlook Expedition Project.

    We'll be providing lots more information about the individual exhibitors over the next couple of weeks. So, sign up to our Newsletter or follow our Social Media channels for updates.

  • Season's Greetings | Christmas Opening Hours

    We would like to wish all our customers, friends and associates a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! As another busy year draws to a close we would like to thank all our customers for working with us throughout 2019.

    We've plenty to look forward to in the New Year, with exciting new products to launch and an update to our Wood Flooring Showroom. Our very popular Timber Shop Open Day is planned for Saturday 8th February and is all set to be the biggest and best yet.

    The British Hardwoods Team will take a well earned break from lunchtime on Tuesday 24th December. Our office, showroom and factory will then be closed until the New Year. We will re-open at 8.00am on Thursday 2nd January 2020.

    Orders can still be placed on our online shop over the Christmas period, and will be processed on our return. Please feel free to send any enquiries by email, which we will attend to on our return.
