English OAK at £20/ft3 (£706.291/m3)

Kiln dried waney edge (T&T) English Oak 27mm in brown and tiger stripe!! Yes really!

English Oak 27mm stack of brown and tiger  English Oak 27mm brown and tiger  English Oak 27mm stack of brown n tiger

What do we know about the Brown Oak?

Well, look at this picture it is a real WOW! The thing that really strikes me is the scale… these must have been giant trees to produce this scale of grain. It’s going to be hard to let these boards go, but go they must. So they’re what you’d expect from English Oak really, a smooth, caramelly colour  but with a generous helping of chocolatey brown grain, some drama in the tiger stripe, and some outsize dimension.

There’s not a massive amount of it as you can see, but there’s certainly enough timber there to have fun selecting your boards.. I can see it now “I want this one…  no I want this one…  and I want this one”

So, 27mm brown English Oak for £20/ft3…  I’ll say it again….  £20/ft3!!!!!!!

French OAK at £28/ft3 (£980.81/m3) ungraded

Kiln dried waney edge (T&T) French Oak in Prime depareille.

kiln dried oak french 18mm depareille detail kiln dried French waney edge Oa 18mm depareille kiln dried oak french 18mm depareille through and through kiln dried Oak 18mm depareille

So what do we know about the Oak depareille?

Well, it’s through & through Prime French Oak, boards selected from boules (hence the name) for cleanness, flatness and widths (200-500mm) specifically for panel-making. Door panels, kitchen cupboards, wall panelling and furniture work… take your pick. It is at 18mm but it’s so flat you could probably get away with 15 or even 14mm at a squeeze and if you want to go lower you’ll be more likely to keep the stability because it’s been sawn and dried so thin.

We love it because it doesn’t have alot of drama going on knot-wise or heart crack -wise so it’s really easy to use…  just take the first board off the top of the stack, and it’s the kind of stuff you can square edge and go…  soooooo little waste.

So, 18mm Prime French Oak for £28/ft3… with a waste factor to warm the cockles of your heart on a chilly February morning.

Oh! I nearly forgot to say… the packs we have in are at 2.2 – 3.1m ish with the majority at about 3.0m. I’m thinking a big pair of double layered panelled Oak front doors… mmmmm yummy!

English CHERRY at £15/ft3 (£529.67/m3) ungraded

This is our kiln dried waney edge (T&T) English Cherry in what we’re calling ‘ungraded’ because we know it’s a real ‘liquorice-allsort’ of a stack.

KILN DRIED WANEY EDGE ENGLISH CHERRY STOCK  english cherry board detail  english cherry board detail for timber sale english cherry stack

So what do we know about the Cherry?

We know that, like the Walnut, there’s a good chance it’s been picked through for the good widths, but having said that they’re not the smallest boards I’ve ever seen….   and we know some boards have that typical Chery warp (the propeller syndrome) but we also know there is some beautiful timber in there too… how do we know? Because we saw a table made out of it the other day that nearly made Peter fall off his forklift in shock..

So 27mm, 34mm, 41mm 54mm & 65mm Cherry at £15/ft3… ???!!!!! Well, it’s not going to be here for long, but for today…  it’s s yours if you want it… so come and get it!

English YEW at £20/ft3 (£635.67/m3) ungraded

This is our kiln dried waney edge (T&T) English Yew in 27mm, 34mm, 41mm &54mm  in what we’re calling ‘ungraded’ (example in pic)

Cute little waney edge yew board  Kiln dried Yew stack
So what do we know about the Yew?

We know there’s some very aged stock in there (fave of the cabinet makers – we know), so you might find boards over 10 years old. If we’re really honest we haven’t looked through this stack properly for months (although Chris had a look through last week with super duper furniture maker Nathan from Rams Design & came in from the yard slightly over excited at how great it was). Knowing our stock  it’s bound to contain some treasures… but there will be alot more of the ‘unique’ than the ‘standard’… and I suppose that’s why Peter & Tom want it shifted… so it’s all yours!

Stock available? 27mm, 34mm, 41mm 54mm Yew at £20/ft3 instead of £35/ft3…  that’s gotta be worth a trip surely??!!

See our Packs & Boards STOCKLIST  for more info on stock or our species page for more info on Yew

English WALNUT at £30/ft3 (£1059/m3) ungraded

This is our kiln dried waney edge (T&T) English Walnut in what we’re calling ‘ungraded’ because we know we’re not going to have time to sort this stack and we need the space urgently. You could say it’s graded to sell!

So what do we know about the Walnut?

We know it’s been picked through for all the good widths (really… all? hmm… I’ll get back to you about that) we know it’s not long,  but there are some sizable boards in the stack (pictures to follow) and the stack is 4m3 (140ft3) so not nothing by any means. You likes your Walnut you takes your pick…

So 27mm, 34mm & 41mm Walnut at £30/ft3… need we say more??!!

See our Packs & Boards STOCKLIST  for more info on available stock and out species page for more info on Walnut

English OAK at £24/ft3 (£847.55/m3) Character

This is our kiln dried waney edge (T&T) English Oak, 80mm  Character grade (example in pic – big LHS board)

kiln dried waney edge english Oak 80mm board
So what do we know about the Oak?

The good old English Oak. We know you don’t really need to be told anything about everyone’s favourite wood, the Oak. But we do know that this reduced price stock is not long. It’s lengths up to 2.2 m to be precise.

We had a few boules back in the day that were short… or actually some long boules that were too long and got cut down… and that’s where these little cuties came from. Not that little though are they?! Some of these boards weigh in at over 100kg each… Yikes! But if you want nice chunky table tops or worktops these boards are your man…

    Hi,
    Do you come across people using waney edge hardwood as a skirting board? I’m thinking of using it in our lounge as a real feature. What do you think?

      Hi, Interesting idea! I don’t see why you shouldn’t have waney skirting board… you could get one waney, one straight boards planed and ready to use. Then you could cut them to length as you needed, even mitre in nicely.. could look very neat! Let us know if you want prices etc we’ll be happy to quote for you. Best regards, Sarah

    Hi I don’t know much about wood I’m afraid! I am looking for a piece of Double Edged Waney Wood that has alot of character, maybe with a few gaps in it. I think Yew is quite good and wiggly edged, isn’t it? I want to make a height chart; so it will need to be about 6.5ft tall x 15-16″ wide (max). Is this the sort of thing you have? I look forward to your reply.
    Regards
    Sue Eaton

    We have a reasonable sized english walnut tree in our garden, and wondered whether you would be interested? I dont have its trunk size at the moment but can provide this along with photos if you are
