Interesting Timbers is a family owned and operated business, supplying quality Native Hardwoods and Soft Woods. For over 36 years we have specialised in sawmilling, drying and the selling of Interesting Timber, we sawmill onsite and continue to process home grown trees to produce air dried and kiln dried English Hardwood Timbers. We are happy to assist you with your bespoke and individual timber needs by supplying your British Timber requirements in small or large quantities as Waney or Square Edged timber.

We spend time in the cutting and drying of our large and small slab timber and squared edged and Waney Edged (Live Edge) timber, we carefully season our timber over many years before we offer this beautiful natural product to our clients, a long slow process which can take many years, a long term investment which is well worth the wait, ‘…Quality means doing it right when no one is looking...' We do not sell freshly sawn timber (wet timber) for furniture making usage. Freshly sawn timber is available for a variety of other uses, please ask us if you require this.

We purchase trees in the round locally and across the UK, from managed woodlands, local estates, farmers and tree surgeons etc. Many of them are windblown or have been felled because they have outgrown their position. Occasionally there is a story to go with our larger special trees which are not part of what we describe as our ‘general timber stock’ and we try to pass these details on to the end user of the timber we aim to match our timber to our clients’ individual requirements.

We have always been keen to prevent the decline in British Woodlands and this is why we have resisted the trend to source our timber across Europe and the World.  We have continued to buy trees locally, sawing it into boards and eventually drying it and preparing it for use by: furniture makers, designers, traditional wood crafters, hobbyists, artists, architects, builders, self-builders, professional and amateur woodworkers, carvers, turners and anyone needing timber for home improvements.

We sell Waney Edged & Square Edged Timber & Bespoke Timber Tops etc.
