  • The Great British Hardwoods Bake Off

    This year two of our staff, J-Lo and Jim-Bob, have decided to go head-to-head in our 'Great British Hardwoods Bake Off' competition, all guided by the BBC Good Food 2012 calendar with delectable monthly recipes. Our aspiring pastry chefs (well, we like to think so) must follow the recipe as outlined in the calendar, however the appearance of the dish is open to individual interpretation/creativity.

    The rules are that each chef will plate up their cakes and the rest of us in the factory and office blind taste each one, voting for their favourite and results are tallied up.

    So the results are were....

    This month we see the 'Frosty Orange Yogurt Cake', very zesty and light (depending on which you ate!). It was a resounding thumbs up for Jo-Lo's cake pictured on the right.

    We're not just specialists in oak!

  • Annual Timber Sale 2011

    What a cracking day it was for a timber sale, selling over 300 lots of rough sawn and planed hardwood timber in just an hour! We also had members from the Birstall woodworking club hold demonstrations on woodturning techniques, which is always a big hit with our keen hobbyists.

    This year we decided to add a new format to the sale by running a silent auction, with all profits from the auction going to the Sue Ryder foundation. The format was a resounding success raising £350.00 from the auction!

    For all you woodworking enthusiasts, it's an event not to miss as you can grab some serious bargains in various hardwood species from European and American Oak, American Black Walnut, English Walnut and Yew are just to name a few.

    Don't worry if you missed the event, as we'll continue to update our website and blog with updates on our next sale. Although, you don't need to wait a whole year for the sale, just visit our online shop for some great deals.

    Thank you to everyone that came along to the sale and a special thanks to customers who participated in the silent auction.
