This is the best place to buy any type of wood that you could hope for. The Sales staff are friendly and willing to assist. The selection of woods is enormous and you'llbe spoilt for choice with whatever wood and grain you are after. They also have an off-cuts warehouse which has a lot of usable pieces for smaller projects at very reasonable prices.

They have a scrap warehouse open on Monday Wednesday and Friday where you can buy small quantities of exotic woods. Great for small turnings like pens etc. Their selection of hardwoods cannot be beaten. They will also cut planks to fit your transport. I have been buying from them for years. Always good.

I went to both the off-cuts and the main warehouse. The sales personnel at both places were friendly and helpful. Huge selection, for a first time wood buyer it was a bit intimidating.
