For the past sixteen years our source of  Super Prime Oak has been the same forest region in Croatia. Renowned for it’s sound and well grown Oaks, the supply has been reassuringly consistent in quality.

Having seen the operations first-hand Tom knows this is down to the careful log selection and the attention to detail that follows during conversion and drying.

The Croatian forest is certified under the Forest Stewardship Scheme® and our chain of custody provides  well documented assurance that the timber comes from sustainably managed forests and legal felling programs.


The appeal of using Super Prime Oak has got to be the consistency of grade. It is relentlessly clean with a light, even honey colour. Of course the sizes are a massive benefit too, just look at those boards that Graham is selecting from!

This is the kind of quality & consistency you can stake your reputation on, and we know many firms who do just that.

The grade of ‘Super Prime’ literally means no knots, although the odd pip is acceptable on one face. The logs are sawn traditionally and left to fully air dry in boules. The kilning programme is set to achieve specific moisture levels for each thickness (see below). The waney edge boards are then edged to leave minimal sap and graded to produce these high grade, high yield boards.

Kiln programme (thickness /moisture %):
20, 27 and 32mm  at 10-12%. 40 and 50mm at 12-14%. 65 and 80mm at 14-16%. 100 and 120mm 16%


The ability to self-select timber is something we know our customers value and enjoy, but when time is tight and you need some help we’re glad to put Peter & Graham to work on your behalf to select as per your list.

Not every board in this pack is this wide or long… but nearly!
