We keep in stock a vast amount of air dried and vacuum kiln dried wooden slabs and joinery timber and you can personally select the slabs for your project, although our clients usually trust us to make the selection. You can request the wood in it’s raw state (only kiln dried), or we can level the planks for you for a small additional cost. If you want a full design and finishing service, this can be provided by our sister company, Earthy Timber. We have an eye for detail, and we love all of the natural imperfections: knots, splits, and in-grown bark. We don’t hide them, we make a unique and beautiful feature out of them with our exclusive clear resin, metal inserts and bark preservation service.
We also offer a unique facility of vacuum kiln drying the timber up to 100mm thickness, which leads to the ability to produce bespoke surfaces from chunky planks and slabs (a slab is a single plank of wood that is wider than 600mm) of your choice such as a worktop, table, shelves, stair treads from your own tree (as long as you can provide us with the license or other valid permission for cutting the tree or if you can prove the tree fell from natural causes and we can be satisfied you can meet all the relevant legal obligations).
All our products are produced in an environmentally friendly and ethically justified way from the timber sourced in England, Scotland and Europe. We are registered with the Forestry Commission, ref UK/FC 103323 and we support sustainable forest management. All our products are EUTR compatible.
Vacuum kiln drying an advanced technology using a gentle process to reduce the timber moisture content below 10%, superior to conventional kiln drying. The quality benefits of using vacuum drying are visible from the moment the timber leaves the chamber, as the wood is far less likely to warp or have any movement.
