Does anyone have experience with Shelmore timber near Stafford ?

Considering paying them a visit, but any feedback beforehand would be welcome.

Cheers,

Nope, I didnt. I've lately been buying at british hardwoods. Prices are quite ok and delivery cost isnt bad either.

But if someone has some experience with Shelmore, I would still be happy to hear about !

Very nice people, quick to answer email and provide quote
prices seem very good. I ordered the following (incl VAT)

White oak 2" : 73.20 gbp per cuft
Tulipwood 1" : 22.74 gbp per cuft
Order placed on Wednesday, timber delivered on Thursday noon
I havent worked on the Tulipwood yet, but milled all the oak (4 cuft) and all boards were absolutely clean. By far the cleanest wood I have ever received
I will definitely reorder from them.
