Thin Prime Grade European Beech Timber
Our Thin European Beech is manufactured from prime grade hardwood timber and sanded on one face. The timber is supplied in random lengths, which vary depending on stock availability at the time of manufacture.
Please note: The timber is sawn and then sanded on one face only and is not machine planed. If you require fully planed, square edge timber please see our range of Planed All Round European Beech. It is normal for thin wood to display a slight curvature across the width due to the natural movement of the timber.
Our thin Beech timber is sourced from Europe and machined to order in our factory here in Yorkshire. The boards are sawn and then sanded on one face and are suitable for woodworking, furniture making, model making and crafts such as marquetry, intarsia and luthiery. The timber can vary from whitish to very pale brown and may darken to a pale pinkish brown. It has a straight grain with fine, even texture and a characteristic fleck.
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.
