We stock waney and square edged boards, all of which are planed on both faces, making them ready to work with!

For online orders we can courier deliver one or two boards, or on a pallet for larger orders. Delivery options and cost will be displayed at the checkout.
In The Timber Rack we will be happy to discuss all the options to get your boards safely home! If in doubt we are also happy to explain on the phone!

Other Stuff Worth Knowing

Although The Timber Rack is situated within the stock sheds at English Woodlands Timber, there is no access to general stock. To view stock boards or select for cutting lists please contact the English Woodlands Timber sales team who will be happy to assist you.

Ben and the team are happy to cross cut boards to approximate sizes to assist you in transporting them home. If you’ve gone really wild we can discuss and organise delivery as required.

Please wear suitable footwear if possible in The Timber Rack. The boards can be very heavy, and your safety is very important to us. Someone will always be available to help lift and shift if need be. Never be afraid to ask!
