Hi all,

I am setting up a list of UK and Ireland timber yards and the offerings that they provide.

ADDING a new timber yard/s?
Please post JUST the name of the yard, it's location and, if known, the web site address in this thread (NOT ANY DETAILS such as opening times). The detail will be added in a separate 'Notes' thread, once the yard has been set up.

POSTING DETAILS about a timber yard?
Please click 'Notes' on the right hand side for the yard that you want to update. If it says Notes WIP it means that the yard is set up, but we are not yet ready to request details about the yard. There is sometimes a short wait for detail requests, this is so that we do not fill the board with timber yard threads.


NEW to BUYING Hardwood?

If you are new to buying hardwood, you MUST READ this EXCELLENT thread by Custard.



For Veneers please see Capital Crispin (London).
