We produce profiles, mouldings and machined componentry for joiners and furniture makers.
Pick any spec or profile from any stock, we’ll produce to order.
Some profiles are standard, other bespoke. We’re flexible. And if you need cutters that we don’t already have we can produce new cutters to fit your specification. (more…)
We use couriers, trucks, lorries, pallet companies & even containers…
so location and distance from our woodyard are no longer obstacles to buying timber.
The Reserve is our Hillgrove Timber Co hoard of exceptional boards for furniture makers and making.
In this video Nick gives you an insight into what makes a Reserve board and why.
Last week we set up the SCM to run some waney edge Scottish Elm slabs through for a furniture making customer.
BEWARE: You might want your ear defenders on when you’re listening to this… !
Our SCM machine can take boards up to 1300 mm wide for thicknessing i.e. taking a board thickness down to a specified dimension.
A dedicated retail space you can visit, shop & take timber away with you.
Whilst the general stock sheds are out of bounds to visitors, from 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday The Timber Rack is all yours.
Sweet, full of flavour and very, very strong…
Chestnut is a core stock species for us. It fits our sourcing and sustainability criteria like a glove. It’s tough, durable, beautiful, adaptable and it’s supported by a stable supply chain from well managed UK woodlands that makes our hearts glad.
Here Tom’s giving us the benefit of his half forestry / half timber knowledge explaining the uses and benefits of castanea sativa… Sweet Chestnut.

Fine, wide, extraordinary.

Meet Bryan, our first super user…
London based customer Bryan Kelly does all his board selection online and only visits when he needs to spec machining.
In this video Nick and Wayne host Bryan and team for a covid-safe board spec-ing session.
Bryan is our first super user customer. He chooses all the boards he wants for his home refurbishment using the webshop and stock search picking lists from the peace and quiet of his own desk. So far he’s bought over 300 boards this way!
Then we pick them, pack them and deliver them straight to his home or into his joinery team for working.
The only time Bryan needs to travel down from London is when he and his guys want to use our workshop for machining boards before we ship them – not everyone’s got a 1300mm wide planer sander in their workshop – and now we’ve got the hang of contactless collections that’s completely do-able.
Look out for pt 2, we’re hoping to catch Bryan mid-refurb to see what he’s doing with all those boards.
The Goldilocks principle says there’ll always be one (grade) that’s ‘just right’…
That makes sense to us. The idea that there’s a ‘just right’ for things.
Goldilocks didn’t know which bowl would work, she used trial and error to find out which one was just right for her breakfast.
She messed up everybody’s porridge, broke a chair and fell asleep in the process, all whilst engaged in bit of fairytale trespassing.
