Planed All Round European Beech Timber
Our Planed All Round European Beech is accurately machined using state of the art German technology, ensuring you receive timber that is perfectly smooth and straight, making it a pleasure to work with.
Our timber is supplied in random lengths, which can vary due to stock availability at the time of machining. We recommend adding plenty of extra onto your total combined length requirements to allow for wastage. We don't offer a cut to length service as this slows down our manufacturing lead time.
We can machine to sizes in between the width and thickness dimensions listed, please contact our Sales Office who will be happy to advise you.
Our Prime Beech is sourced from Europe and planed to order in our factory here in Yorkshire. The sapwood is hard to differentiate from the heartwood. The colour can vary from whitish to very pale brown and may darken to a pale pinkish brown. It can turn to a deeper reddish brown with steaming. The wood sometimes has a dark red heart or darker veining. It has a straight grain with fine, even texture and a characteristic fleck, and quarter-sawn wood may display an attractive broad ray figure on radial surfaces.
It has medium stiffness and high crushing strength. Pre-boring is necessary when nailing. It glues easily, stains and dyes well and takes an excellent finish. It is very good for turning.
