Wood Knowledge: Hand Riven Sweet Chestnut Laths


MD Tom Compton introduces a very special product; the riven chestnut lath

Hand riven from split sweet chestnut rounds the laths are made out in the woods under tarp, usually by the extremely hardy and highly skilled woodland workers managing the coppiced woodlands.

The hand riven laths are tradition woodland products, primarily used for traditional lime plastering of ceilings and walls in the restoration of period and heritage properties (although there’s nothing to stop them being used in a new build!).
