Thanks for the notification Antony.

 

It appears Dennis Nixon has finally retired.I don't know if the company linked to has taken over his workshop and renamed the business or it is a completely independant company.I suggest if anyone orders some timber from the woodrack,then report back with their findings.It may be a little while before I order anything as it was only just before Xmas that Dennis custom cut a mountain of Pear strip for my Nuestra build.

 

Kind Regards

I went to the HobbyMill website. They have a note that they are no longer taking orders. I guess they've gone out of business. Does anyone know about that?

Yes,  Jeff announced last year that he was retiring at the end of 2015.  He ran a clearance sale a couple of weeks ago to get rid of his leftover inventory.

Thanks Mark. It's a shame as it appears this was an excellent source of fine modeling wood. Anyone know of one as good?

Walt,

 

Crown Timberyard.  If there's wood you want that Jason doesn't carry, try The Lumberyard.   Anyway, see the first post in this topic, there's lots of choices depending on what you're looking for and wanting to do.

Asked for some samples of wood (Pear and Cherry) from the thewoodrack in the UK. Decent sized samples arrived quickly so I bit the bullet and ordered some Cherry. I preferred the colour althought it was slightly harder to work than the Pear.

 

Anyway pleasant enough transaction and the wood arrived promptly (ordered Friday PM, arrived Tuesday AM) and the purchased wood matched the sample. 
 
Here is a picture

Genarally happy (apart from the cost) but I'll let you make your own mind up about the quality because it's the first time I have used non kit wood.

For members who live this side of the Atlantic ;) found this supplier on one of the German forums. 

    

                        www.modellbau-holzleisten.de

 

There are several suppliers on the first google page,the one you want is Massiveholzwerkstätten Horschig.

He has a very good selection, eg 5mm x 100mm x 1000mm Birnbaum (pearwood) & Nussbaum (walnut)

plus others at 7 Euros per plank. Well worth a look IMO.

Hello Zoltan,

 

Sorry, but I have not ordered from this supplier yet as I already have a good stock of Pearwood and some European boxwood. But I'll  likely order from there in the future. I only posted the info for the benefit of any members who might have been interested.

 

Regards,

I would highly recommend people giving Matt at Inlay Banding a look if you are looking for ebony, holly, or other woods:

Matt was really great to work with, and did a custom order for me to exact specifications.  He was even able to get ebony sheets down to as little as 0.7mm.  Matt most does work for inlays and veneers, but I think he would make a great resource for ebony and other exotics (along with ebony, he does holly, maple, boxwood, satinwood, maple and others).  Now that Jeff is retired, I would highly recommend Matt is you are looking for ebony or other woods.

Ok, I would like to share my experience buying wood from Massiveholz on line shop which is based in Germany.

All orders need to be made via email and I must say there is a massive variety available. All wood I received so far has been great quality.

I asked initially for some wood samples, 10 strips of various woods 2 x 10 x 1000 mm. Then I placed a large order, however I received more wood in most dimensions (it seems that round everything to multiples of 10!) and some other dimensions were less or missing. I emailed Frank and I received the missing wood but also some more strips I needed and asked to be added on, free of charge.

Packaging was very good and I received all orders within a few days. I would think prices are competitive .

Overall this is an excellent place to buy your wood if you are this side of the pond.
