Sawn Prime European Beech (per cubic foot)
Our Rough Sawn European Beech Timber is supplied by the cubic foot in full sized boards. The boards are supplied in random widths, typically between 90mm and 150mm, depending on stock availability. The plank lengths tend to be around 2.4 metres to 3 metres, but again may vary due to stock availability.
If you require timber in specific widths or with a fully planed finish, we would recommend our planed all round beech timber.
Please Note: It is to be expected that the sawn boards will display watermarking due to the kiln drying process. This completely natural phenomenon occurs as the water dries out from the timber. This natural surface marking, along with any other marks, will be removed when you plane and/or sand the boards.
Guide to Cubic Foot Calculation:
An average 3m x 5" x 1" board equates to 0.35 cubic foot
Our Rough Sawn Beech Timber is sourced from the very best sawmills in Europe. The timber is a prime grade though may contain some small knots. The wood has a straight grain with a distinctive fleck. The boards are carefully stored in our heated and acclimatised factory giving an average moisture content of between 9-11%.
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.
