Hi - I need to find some Mahogany

is it possible to get anything less then 25mm thickness in Ireland?- this seems to be the minimum in brooks

I need 15mm min 18max

I can get it from Germany - and it looks incredible


I'd love to find some 9mm as well but chances look slim

Any recommendations along with abbey woods and woodworkers.ie?

I don't mind traveling outside Munster



I'll be looking around for 30-40mm cherry too for a worktop - but that should be easier to find

Flesh,
In all my travels I have not found any place ( other than woodworkers.ie that you already mention) that sell hardwood less that 25 mm. I presume if you are asking this question then you are not in a situation where you can resaw thicker boards. Either by table saw or band saw or plane them down with a thicknesser/jointer. Brooks in balbriggan do resaw but I think they only do softwood, they have a massive bandsaw in the warehouse. It might be worth asking them about hardwood, if you haven't already that is.

actually I just checked my links and check out http://www.strahan.ie/prod-hardwoods.htm
look at the bottom of the page and they have mahogany (luan) 2 x 3/4" I know it's way outside your area and they probably charge an arm and a leg but it is all that I can find in my bookmarks that is close to what you are looking for.

Take care.

I got mahogany from stranhan and it's perfect. A little over an inch thick,actually it varies in width from 6-over 8 inches and wasn't too expensive, They thickness it for a small fee if needed.
On the subject,anyone know where I'd pick up some rosewood?

i would be curious too as where you could get some of the more exotic woods. Rosewood, tulipwood ebony etc.... small quantities without having to resort to the internet and buying them sight unseen.

is there any place open in Dublin on a Saturday and preferably with a cutting service. I need a couple of sheets of oak mdf. I think that Noyeks are open in morning but not sure if they will cut, can't get 8' * 4' in car!

Hi guys, I'm looking for some cedar cladding (shadow gap profile) preferably 200mm wide. If anyone could recommend a supplier it would be much appreciated.

Kantor are selling off all their stock for about half the price from what I have heard. They are closing down Not sure when but soon. Might be helpful for someone looking for a good deal.

They are only closing the branch in Ballymount, the one in Kilbeggan is staying open and any unsold stock will be sent down to it. No great discounts(from what they told me today) but I always thought they were good value anyway.

There is a company in Ballylanders that might be worth a shot.

Newly felled European Larch - Trunks and Burrs

I've just felled several mature european larch trees which were from 80-100ft tall. All between 90 and 110 years old. Bases are from 1.5- 2.5 feet across.

Long lengths when milled would be great mantels, or beams in a renovation or new build. Timber is golden/orange in colour.

Located in North County Louth, accessible site.

For sale in raw state, unmilled - will need to be milled, sanded, dried etc.

PM me if interested

Hi all,

Can anyone recommend somebody that would sell 1"x3" pine, nail ply, removable pin hinges? I am constructing a set and need materials for flats. It has to be good value as it is a tight budget and must be in Dublin. If they are open anytime Saturday it would be brilliant.

Thanks
