Timber

A place to ask questions about sourcing, identifying & getting rid of useful timber.

If folks are looking for pieces or have noticed a felled tree etc etc

Found this crowd while browsing.According to their site they supply to the small user, turners/carvers as well as large volume users. Haven't used them yet.

Went out there once (a right bugger to find, in the middle of nowhere!) when they first got going a couple of years ago. Seemed a bit chaotic and disorganised to be honest, and didn't really seem oriented towards the small user. Fine if you wanted half a tree, but not just the odd bowl blank or so. They could have changed in the meantime though.

i have been down to lisnavagh (irish woods) during the summer - it is a bit of a trek but if you want kiln dried planks in most species 2" thick then there is plenty to choose from - for me as a woodturner this was ok for platters etc but not much in the line of bowl blanks etc - bought a plank of sycamore which is now a coffee table and made a platter from the offcut.

I've just picked up some cherry,ash,yew,spalted beech and a nice piece of walnut for 50 quid. I think that's cheap. I won't say where I got for fear of my source getting the hump while he's busy, but pm me for the whereabouts if you'd be interested in similar.The piece of ash is 3 ft long by 11/2 wide and 5'or 6' thick. Can't guarentee he'll have more at the minute though.

I got red cedar beams 12"x4" and yellow pine 12"x1" in Morgans in the docks (Dublin). They have no web site that I know of but they had a huge selection of timber. They let me cut one of the cedar beams because it was too long. They have a lot of 'off cuts' lying around the place.
It was a couple of years ago. Give yourself plenty of time to find the timber you want. The place is hugh and the staff are only interested in you if you know what you want.
The is another timber merchant on the same road only a few hunderd yards away but I can't remember the name. It is also worth a look.
