Hardwood Sizes Guide

All the hardwoods detailed on this page, except for the green oak sleepers, are high quality, kiln-dried boards, stored flat and under cover. Most packs of hardwood that arrive in the yard comprise a single thickness, one or perhaps two lengths, and random widths, meaning that all boards in a pack are 4" wide and wider. The word 'wider' has never had a clear definition, with most boards measuring between 6" and 8".
Prices below are per cubic metre, excluding V.A.T., and are for sawn stock, purchased 'boards rising' (This is where you purchase the board as seen). We will sell part boards for smaller projects, but this may incur a surcharge. We are unable to sell part of a board if we are left with a piece shorter than 2.13m(7') or narrower than 152mm (6"). Available thicknesses are detailed below. A comprehensive machining service is available- this includes planing to size, glueing and biscuit jointing, chamfering & bevelling, rebates and bespoke moulding.
We are always happy to advise on materials, and we will quote for any size of project with no obligation to you. Machining charges start at 40 per machinist per hour plus V.A.T for simple cutting to length, cutting/planing to size and simple jig work and jointing, please enquire for rates on more complex moulding work. We are happy to provide estimates without obligation to buy.
