SERVICES

Deliveries

Laminating

Machining

Timber Identification

Our main service is one-on-one assistance and advice. We will advise you on what wood would be best suited to your application and then help you select the best planks for
the job.

Machining: We can surface, rip and plane your planks to your preferred specification and even laminate and sand your tops if required. On a larger scale, we are happy to plane your bundles down to your exact finished size and even cross cut your components. Just about any moulding can also be run whether it be for skirtings, architraves, beading, ceiling boards or flooring and this can be done from the wood of your choice.

Timber Identification: There are very few places in the country where one can get timber identified. Timber identification can be done by visual inspection where the sample of wood in question is inspected for colour, grain figure, weight and even smell. Most of the time if it’s a wood that we are familiar with we’ll be able to identify it straight away. If we cannot identify your timber visually we can send away a sample to a lab where the cell structure is carefully examined under a microscope by a professor of wood science. Please be advised there is a charge to send a sample away to the lab.
