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 undersize.   

If you require a finished size of 2x2 we recommend purchasing a larger blank such as 3x3 & 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.
