Our Waney Edged Timber (Natural Live Edge)
We may need to look at boards to check their suitability for your projects so we may not be able to confirm availability straight away or pricing over the phone. (Some patience on your side may be required)
We can quote to select and supply timber as Waney Edged Boards (Natural Live Edge) (Wood Slab) (Live Edge Wood) (Live Edge Timber) with a Sawn Finish or Surfaced Flat and Planed on one or two faces, to your cutting list.
Email us your cutting list
We can work out the volume of timber including estimated wastage that you require, we will email you a price quotation.
For a delivery cost provide your delivery post code.
Remember to tell us what your project is and the species of timber you would like a quotation for (remember to let us know if you require Waney/Live Edges or Square Cut edges)
Price Guide is for general stock, ask about selection for special features and sizes
Starting Prices we have price guided timber species as rough sawn boards, showing the thickness. The price guides gives an idea of starting prices if you are buying smaller widths and lengths.
If you require timber with special features, wider widths and longer lengths email us your project details and we will be happy to quote.
The guide prices listed are in pounds per cubic foot 'for our general stock', smaller widths and shorter lengths, as selected for you by us, excluding VAT.
Timber Selection for Special Features & Sizes
Particularly Interesting Boards, Planks, Slabs, various Single Slabs, Wood Slabs, Long and Wide Boards, Quarter Sawn Oak, Pippy Oak, Burr Oak, Brown Oak boards, Rippled, Spalting etc. Rare and Unusual Sized boards are always priced individually and not necessarily at the cubic foot prices listed. Boards like this, with special features etc. tend to be individually priced to reflect the high demand for these boards, the difficulty in producing them and their scarcity.
We keep most of our timber stocks in 'sawn' form and you are welcome to buy boards which are rough sawn.
Producing timber suitable for a range of projects including furniture is 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 can quote to machine your timber, machining when requested is done to order.

Similarly, an item on the list may be unavailable, or due to be available within a few days, weeks, months or years depending on where the timber is in the drying cycle. Please contact us if you are not sure or if you require general, unusual or interesting timber, we are happy to discuss your requirements and pricing.

On some occasions it may take longer than this to reply, please remember that we will be looking at boards to find 'the one or many', just right for you. If your project requirements are detailed and specific and if enquiry demand is high, this process may take around 7 days.

Timber is a natural material
We spend time in the cutting and drying of our large and small slab timber and squared edged timber, we carefully season our timber over many years before we offer this beautiful natural product to our clients.
Slabs which are wider and longer and those selected for character and special features may have some natural splits and naturally occurring elements which are not faults but are part of their charm.
We have over 34 years’ experience in the art of sawmilling and the drying of interesting timber and producing bespoke timber items. The careful drying of slabs can often take between 5 to 10 years. Producing timber suitable for table tops and furniture is a long slow process and is a long term investment well worth the wait. Our timber is air dried or kiln dried.
Timber is a natural material and will expand and contract with seasonal changes in humidity. Although we take care to minimise this by careful selection and seasoning of our timber slabs changes in humidity will occasionally over time result in some distortion. This is not a defect; it is a consequence of the nature of the material which adds to its charm and individuality.
We always quote on the basis that our timber slabs will be used inside
