Local Timber

A sustainable alternative to FSC / PEFC certified timber is to source timber locally. This not only keeps the product mileage and carbon footprint low, but also supports the local economy.

By using trusted local sources, we are able to widen the choice of beautiful timber we can offer you. We carry stock of (and can regularly source) local ash, beech, spalted beech, and cherry, amongst many other options.

If you have a particular project in mind, we can advise you on what timbers would work well.

This fantastic pippy oak (see right) was sourced locally. We created a really stunning effect using this timber for all the handmade doors throughout the kitchen.

Our client was really keen to use local timber and the amazing woodgrain created a really unique look. For a full kitchen tour see here.

Our client’s brief for this desk commission was specifically for a lovely local timber. The grain on the ash we chose is exquisite.
