Timber Sizing Guidelines

Please note the sizes displayed are approx. Due to timber coming from all over the world starting thicknesses vary up to 1/4“ depending on the origin. We use the umbrella guides of 1”,1.5”, 2”, 3” & 4”, but please be aware that all planks are planed one face to highlight the grain and to allow us to see faults which can result in under thickness.

This can result in planks being under the thickness depending on the starting thickness. For example, Oak 2” is normally 2.1/8th before we plane which allows 2” thickness after we plane and 2x2 spindles or blanks. Native Ash is often 17/8th to  2” after drying and before we plane. This can plane to 1.75” and result in 1.75”x2” spindles.

Whilst we always try and maintain the thickest board possible, sometimes it can be undersized.   

If you require a finished size of 2x2 we recommend purchasing a larger blank such as 3x3 and machining this back yourself.

If you require sawn spindles or blanks please state in the comments section of the order and we can cut to order in our sawmill. Please note this service can take up to 10 working days.

Lead Times On Timber Blanks.

Here at Yandles we cut all our blanks by hand, on-site, in our very own Sawmill. Despite our extensive stock holding in our Self-Selection Centre, we do not always have the right size & quantity to fulfil all our online orders.  During busy periods, we may need time to cut our Timber orders to size and this can take up to 10-Working Days.  Please be patient with our Sawmill, they are working hard to fulfil as many orders a day as they can. If you require a fast turn-around time, please call us on 01935 822 207 or send us an email sales@yandles.co.uk and we can check the stocks for you before you order to avoid disappointment.
