Always found them unrealistically expensive as a trade customer. They probably do most business with customers such as architects etc. where price is a secondary consideration.

I bought PAR European oak from them and it was at the very top end of prices I was quoted but the delivery charges quite a bit less than others. The quality was superb (no faults or waste at all) and their packaging to prevent transit damage has to be seen to be believed! I don't imagine they would suit trade buyers but for a hobbyist like myself without a decent local source of timber they are very useful.

Did anyone else off this board go?
I went and luckily got there for 9 am
there was a few guys outside waiting in cars and by 9.10 we were allowed in to a reception area
On the dot of 9.30 about 150 guys burst into the sale floor ..It was just like a gaggle of grannys jostling to get in a jumble sale ...and within 15 minutes all 300 or so lots were sold
I managed to get 9 lots of various woods....very pleased with my haul and I'll certainly go back for more full price timber
