Welcome to MAC Timbers


Open Day - April 2024


Mike & Rene are very pleased to announce the first open day for 2024. The date will be Sunday 7th April 2024.

Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you.


Our friends from the world of woodturning Martin & Fred will be happily demonstrating on the lathes.

Hopefully Andy the toolman will be here in his van full of antique tools.

We are also hoping Richard Arnold and Bill Carter will be here to talk about everything wood and tools.

Ken should be here to show off his skills in marketry & have a few bits to sell. 

Lots of wood for sale as always so come along, have a cuppa and a biscuit and enjoy the day.



Welcome to MAC Timbers


If you have not been here before please feel free to browse our site. We are a supplier of Timber products locally sourced from a 50 mile radius of our home location in Northamptonshire.


We have spent the last 60 years serving the local community and now wider areas of the country. Sadly we do not provide online sales or parcel delivery services. The cost to us is prohibitive and not profitable. We do welcome customers to come and visit us at any time. We are usually open every day of the week but we would ask you to give us a ring before travelling to make sure we will be here when you come.


Our timber is changing all the time and we only tend to stock English hardwoods. If you are looking for foriegn or exotic species then we are not the right place for you.


If you are looking for materials for your hobby or for larger projects we can usually find something suitable. If you are working in construction then we may be able to accomodate you but we will advise you if not.


Most of our customers are small scale Carpenters / Joiners, Woodturners & Carvers. However we hold large quantities of stock if you are looking for larger projects.

Stunning Elm board

On the 29th April 2022 we suffered a catastrophic fire that destroyed our workshop. Due to the help of our dear friends and customers we have completely rebuilt our business. We cannot believe how generous everyone has been with donations and time. Over on the Gallery page are some photo's of what we have been through over the last 2 years.


Once again we would like to thank everyone who has helped us to rebuild our lives! 

So With all that said back to business!

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.
