Our prime grade European Oak timber is sustainably sourced from the best sawmills in Northern France and planed to order at our factory here in Yorkshire. The timber is kiln-dried to an average moisture content of 9-11% and stored in our heated and humidity-controlled premises. Our planed timber is accurately machined by our skilled craftsmen and has a fine surface finish.

We can also machine to sizes in-between those listed. If you require non-standard sizes, edge-jointed timber, or timber supplied in minimum lengths, please Contact Us we would be happy to advise you.

Sections at 70mm thickness will be manufactured from more than one piece to ensure stability. The laminated joint is extremely strong and care is taken to match the grain ensuring a neat finish.

Can you machine to widths in-between those listed?

Yes, we can. To order online, select the nearest larger width and indicate your custom width at the end of the order process. For complex cutting lists, please Contact Us.

Can you machine wider than listed?

We manufacture edge-jointed boards. Please see our range of Edge-Jointed Oak.

Can you machine to thicknesses in-between those listed?

Yes, we can. To order online, select the nearest larger thickness and indicate your custom thickness at the end of the order process. For complex cutting lists, please Contact Us.

Can you machine thinner than 19mm?

Yes, we can machine to a minimum thickness of 10mm. To order online, select the 19mm thickness and indicate your custom thickness at the end of the order process. For complex cutting lists, please Contact Us.

If you require timber thinner than 10mm, please see our Thin Oak.

What lengths will be supplied?

Orders of more than 2 metres of any single size will be supplied in random lengths. These random lengths will typically be between 2.4 metres to 3 metres. However, there may be some shorter lengths supplied due to stock availability at the time of machining.

Can I order set lengths?

As the raw timber we machine from is in random lengths, it is extremely difficult for us to produce orders in set lengths. If you need to achieve specific cuts from the timber we supply, please Contact Us with your cutting list and we would be happy to advise.

Is your timber FSC certified?

All the raw timber we use is sustainably sourced from sawmills that are either FSC or PEFC certified.

Where does your timber come from?

Our European Oak is sustainably sourced from the very best sawmills in France.

What is your lead time?

Current lead times are displayed near the top of the product page under the main product heading.

How much is delivery?

The delivery charge depends on the total weight of the goods ordered and the delivery location. To calculate the delivery charge:

  1. Put all the goods you require into your shopping cart.
  2. Go to the shopping cart.
  3. Type your full delivery postcode in the 'Calculate Shipping' box and our website will calculate the accurate shipping charge for you.

Do you offer free delivery over a certain amount?

We feel that it is fairer and more honest to display delivery costs separately, rather than 'hide' them within the cost of our timber products. Transporting long lengths of timber around the UK is costly. The shipping price shown in the cart is the direct charge from the independent couriers we use.

Can I collect from your premises?

Yes – choose the “Customer Collect” option when placing your order. As soon your order is ready, we will contact you to let you know.

We use numerous ways to deliver our hardwood products all around the UK mainland.

The courier price is the direct charge from the couriers we use and is a weight-driven tariff based on the delivery location.

Courier delivery timescales

The time taken for delivery by courier can vary depending on location. When your order is complete, we will email you to inform you of despatch. The courier will then contact you when they have collected your order from us, to inform you of the expected delivery day.

Storage information

Our skirting boards and architraves are manufactured from solid kiln-dried timbers and should not be stored in a cold, damp environment (e.g. garage, shed or outbuilding). On arrival at your property, the packs should be taken straight indoors into a dry, heated building. All concrete, plaster and wet work should be fully dried out prior to storage and/or installation.

Properties
A fairly hard, heavy and dense hardwood, with high crushing and bending strength, low stiffness and resistance to shock loads. The heartwood varies from light tan to biscuit or deep brown, with distinct bands of earlywood and latewood. The grain is usually straight, but irregular or cross grain can occur including some small knots. Rays and growth rings show an attractive figuring ("silver grain") when quarter sawn. Preboring is advised for nailing and screwing, and a reduced planing angle is advised for irregular or cross-grained stock. Oak timber turns satisfactorily, is good for gluing, painting, sanding, staining and varnishing and will take high polish. European oak can be darkened by fuming with ammonia. Due to tannins present in the timber, oak wood will react with ferrous metals when wet. Select non-ferrous (brass or stainless steel) fixings where possible.

Durability
Extremely durable.

Typical Uses
Oak timber is often used for furniture and cabinetmaking, quality joinery including church pews and pulpits, office furniture, kitchen cabinets, flooring (including parquet), coffins, boats and harbour work, truck bodies, cooperage for wines, cognac and beer. Planed oak timber is sliced for decorative veneers and rotary-cut to make plywood.
