Buying Hardwood Locally For Diy Joinery

Recommended Posts

Is that just one length of 2.4 ×19mm  for a total price of £45?

 

When I enquired at my local diy for a small amount of hardwood, they didn't sell it. They sell just about everything else. There is probably very little demand due to the price.

Have a look at antique furniture auction sites. The couple I've been to sold some lovely tables, wall units and wardrobes for next to nothing.

Sadly. Delivered. I dunno, feels expensive, I agree - but where locally can I get it for a lot cheaper? That's my problem. I want stuff I can work with readily, not having a thicknesser, jointer etc.. This beech PAR should get me half way there.

I know it's not Sheff but Ponti's (Kinsley, near the dog track) not that far and I can recommend these guys from when I've been putting  cigar box guitars together.

Always helpful, certainly knowledgeable about wood and a good selection of Hardwoods always in stock, give them a call you never know.

Keep safe ps; the prices have always been right as well.

Would anyone?!

In my experience, their wood's always been a bit iffy.

I’ve bought quite a bit of wood from Richardsons DIY at Firth Park. They have a wood workshop out the back.

I have no idea if they’d sell what you’re looking for but it might be worth giving them a ring?

I would recommend Richardson's too, we have bought all different kinds and sizes of wood from them over years, my other half is one who has worked with wood over the years so when he comes in later I will ask him if Richardsons do what you are looking for.
