View Full Version : Hardwood Supliers?

29-12-2010, 12:25 PM
My Dad has asked me to make him a sign board for his boat.

My 1st thoughts were to make it out if a nice hardwood so off I went to some DIY stores and no luck... Then to the timber merchants and the same, plenty of decking and such but no unfinished hardwood planks.

Next I turn to Google for some help. I have found some places that supply hardwood planks but not in my area so delivery was crazy for the small qtys I'm looking at.

So anyone in the Manchester/Liverpool area who knows of a supplier near by with a range of hardwoods that I can collect from?

Thanks in advance

It might be better to find a friendly joiner, as they're likely to have suitable offcuts lying around, or point you in the direction of somebody who can supply what you want.
