ok so i have sharpened my hand tools, am learning again how to use them
BUT :?

Living in west london it is almost impossible to find good and interesting timber that you can check over before you buy. Croydon is miles away, and a supplier in finchley only buys to order.
SO has anyone got a way that we can mention wood yards that are helpful, and not a million miles away.
i'd rather travel out as far as oxford, than south london, so that is the radius.
i have checked another post which had some addresses but found little locally, so who can help??

am interested in mainly hardwoods in small quantities, and although i can plane and thickness it it would be nice to check first to ensure i get more project wood for my £. ](*,)

I guess I'm just lucky, 20 miles from...

For the specialist stuff, and lots of people selling local hardwoods from small yards.

There have to be some benefits to living in carrot crunching country.

Try Chaz's wood suppliers guide. Additional entries and comments on existing listings always wanted.

Hah. Living in Cornwall you can forget it completely. You don't know how lucky you are. :roll:

Cheers, Alf
