Timber and Sawmilling
Timberstone boasts its own sawmilling facility incorporating a Woodmizer LT40sawmill. This enables us to convert any type of timber from round log to sawn timber, most notably in sizes and materials not available from your local timber merchants.
All our timber is sourced locally, much from our own woodland. We also pride ourselves on the eco benefits afforded by the sawmillwhich enables us to convert the wood onsite into any manner of product, from a 6 metre span footbridge to a timber frame or small wooden gift.
The timber sawn from our own woodland also comes with FSC accreditation thanks to our Group Certification Membership, ensuring Quality and assured management of our woodlands and the related environment.

On larger projects our timber of choice is predominantly larch and douglas fir, favouring spruce on smaller projects such as small gifts. For indoor furniture the preference is for the more expensive hardwoods when available such as oak, elm, birch and beech but scots pine is a good low cost alternative for some of our pieces.
We have a large array of timber in various sizes and species with straight and/or natural edge; please call with any queries on specific dimensions and type of timber required.
