We may need to look at boards to check their suitability for your project therefore we may not be able to confirm availability straight away or pricing over the phone, this is why we like to email you. (Some patience on your side may be required)

We can provide bespoke/custom made items made to order. For over 34 years we have specialised in producing hardwood items to client's individual specifications.

For quoting purposes you just email us the following information:

  • Provide the finished size/sizes you require and the quantity of shelving needed for your project.
  • For shelves and window boards tell us if you want straight edges or waney edges on the front or back.
  • Tell us if your shelves be floating, will be on battens so your require battens in the same timber as the shelving or will you be using your own shelving brackets. 
  • Do you want the top face sanded or both sides top and bottom sanded? Tell us which edges you require sanded and we can quote to provide shelves and window boards ready for you to apply a finishing product of your choice to; you then fit them into your chosen location.

For floating shelves and Wooden Wall Hanging Hooks it is usual to drill and fit onsite after delivery. We supply the timber to your bespoke sizes with or without battens; we do not supply fixings or wood treatments and finishing products.

If you have a special project in mind with unusual sizes and require shelving, window boards or boards for coat hooks with Waney Edges (Natural Live Edge), Straight Edges or specialist detailing please contact us, we will be happy to provide a quotation.


We are inspired by the phrase ‘… Form follows function…’ the shape of a building or an object, such as a Shelf or Window Board, should primarily relate to its intended function and intended purpose and this should be the starting point for its design.  Good quality hand-craftsmanship will produce an aesthetically pleasing Window Board, Shelves, Staircase, Mantle, Oak Beam or Oak Frame Building. When hand crafting items for you we choose the raw material for you and produce each item as if it were for our own home.

When quoting we are pricing for timber  and slabs which have been seasoned and are suitable for furniture making, we do not sell freshly sawn timber (wet timber) for furniture making usage. Freshly sawn timber is available for a variety of uses, please ask us if you require this.

‘…Quality means doing it right when no one is looking...'
