Anyone know of a supplier of Utile near Manchester? I've been through the sticky, but they're mostly miles away (the closest being Hymor in Stoke). I did try Trafford Timber who have it listed, but they have no stock for a month or two, so that's a bust.

you could try Atlantic timber in Altrincham but I can't promise anything, they seem to be cutting down on there decent timber stock by all accounts.

Tree station are local stuff only, so no chance. :(

Atlantic is worth a shot - I've used them before for ply, didn't realise they had less common hardwoods. Seems from their website, probably not: "We stock three species of timber suitable for joinery work, Pine, Sapele and Oak."

Hymor have stock, £45+VAT per cube, which seems a good price, so they're my backup.

I did a run down to Hymor this morning. Actually not that bad - about 40 minutes each way.

Excellent yard, they have a great selection of timber there and were very helpful.
