  • looking for uk supplier for hardwoods

    Hi All

    I am looking for a uk supplier of hardwoods. I am currently using old floor boards mainly oak and bamboo, but have been given some solid walnut. I sand the boards down to get an good finish on both sides about 3/4" thick, but I am restricted on the size of patterns that I can use.

    looking forward to your replies.

      I ran across this link in the UK when I was looking up the difference between Baltic Birch plywood and Russian Birch Plywood. This company carries (imports with all certificates) hardwoods, BB plywood and so forth.

      http://www.lathamtimber.co.uk/

      Of course I know nothing about this company, except I found this link.

      Please, if you contact this company, let us know how you rate it. Bob, our moderator, may want to add them to our Other Great Sites for Wood vendor.

          Hi All

          Thanks for you replies.
          Steve the craft site is a great place to start you were right when you said it was good. It has a lot more than the wood which I can use, I only hope my credit card can keep up.
          Phil I tried that latham timber site but no luck they only deal in large orders but did give me a few other sites to follow up, I am still waiting to hear from them, but thanks anyway.
          Gill the links page is great lots of company sites to visit as I said to Steve I only hope my credit card can Keep up.

          Thanks again Graham.

              dont forget also, their catalogue is free, so order it from their site. A visit there is recomended, but as you say, you need an empty credit card as you can fill it easily.

                SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
