    As another year draws to a close, we would like to thank you, our valued customers, for your continued support over the last 12 months. We have some exciting events lined up in the new year and you'll see further development of our successful timber shop. So, don't forget to save that very important date of Saturday, 2nd February 2019, with further news to follow in the new year - we guarantee you won't be disappointed!

    The British Hardwoods team will take a well-earned break from 12.00pm on Saturday, 22nd December 2018 and re-open at 8.00am on Wednesday, 2nd January 2019.

    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.

    We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to working with you in 2019.


  • 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.

  • British Hardwoods Christmas Jumper Day

    The British Hardwoods crew got right into the festive spirit of Christmas Jumper Day for 'Save The Children' charity. If you look closely, you spot the elf in his fetching green and red tights.
