How does it work?

  • First of all you have decide whether you want to want in metric or imperial. We work in both.
  • Secondly you have to decide whether you want the timber cut to size or planed all round. With both options our experience staff select the timber to ensure a quality product. Cut to size involves parallel edging the timber and cutting it to length to ensure you have a straight blank to work from or whether you want the timber planed all round to size. If you have your own machining facilities please visit our self selection centre to find the best prices for our sawn boards.
  • Third you have to decide which timber you want. We can prepare cutting lists in Ash, Beech, Iroko, Maple, Kiln dried prime Oak, Sapele, American Cherry, Southern Yellow Pine, Central American Mahogany, American Tulipwood and American Black Walnut.

  • Fourthly you have to decide whether you want to finish at a size or finish ex the size. We work from sawn boards at 25mm(1"), 38mm(1.5"), 50mm(2"), 75mm(3") or 100mm(4"). This means if you need to finish at 25mm we will have to machine a 38mm board to finish at 25mm as the machining takes roughly 3-5mm to plane smooth. If the finished thickness is not too critical you can select ex inch. This means the sawmill will prepare the timber as thick as it will go once it has been planed. 25mm would be around 22mm, 38mm would be 34mm, 50mm would be about 45mm, 75mm would be 70mm and 100mm around 95mm. If your finished sizes falls between the sawn thicknesses we will finish to the size required.  
  • Fifthly order the timber. The sawmill will ensure that the best quality timber is selected and machined to your specifications. They also try to ensure that the order is prepared and dispatched within 5 working days so you are not delayed in your project.

Please note that unless stated we prepare the timber slightly over length
