Our workshop

New Workshop

The workshop was completed in Oct 17 and comprises a full joinery and machine shop. We have now installed the new Norwood sawmill next to the workshop and are able to process trees once again. We have also installed our new kiln capable of taking trees up to 4 mtrs in length.

Stocks are now building and we have very impressive levels of Elm, Cedar and Walnut. For prices and quotes please contact us via Email or phone. Or you can drop by but please make sure we will be there before coming.

English Elm boards for sale. Very large quantities being processed at best prices. Below is an example of what's available. Great for resin coffee tables and dining tables.

We are always interested in finding new trees for processing. If you have a tree that is due to be cut down please give us a call. We are looking for trees that have a trunk girth of 16" (40cm) plus. Preferrably hardwood species only (Although some softwoods such as Yew, Wellingtonia (Giant redwood) and Cedar would be most welcome). We are not able to cut down the tree for you but we might be able to remove the larger bits once they are cut. We can only travel a maximum of 50 miles from our home destination near Oundle in Northants to collect any suitable trees.

News Bits

Those of you who knew Nigel Fleckney from English hardwoods will be sad to hear that he recently passed away. We would like to express our best wishes to his family and friends at this sad time.

We have now recovered large quantities of stock from our previous storage facility. This can now be viewed at our home location. A lot of this stock has been drying for nearly 5 years so is suitable for immediate use.  

Large stocks of English Elm being processed now. Call for best prices!

We currently have kiln dried English Elm in large quantities. If you are interested in purchasing Elm please contact us.

Due to the appaling weather we have had over the winter. Mike has been forced to start a new project  to cover his kilned dried planks. The wood will now go under cover in a new storage facility.
