  3. UK Timber Suppliers

    I would just like to give a 'heads up' to anyone in the UK looking for quality timber.I had a nice chat with a fellow that runs a company based in Norfolk.He supplies various timbers for modelers,but does not supply box or Ebony.I have ordered some Pear from him for one of my current builds.Finding Pear in the UK is awkward when you don't possess a sawmill to reduce planks down to modelling sizes.He keeps a quantity on stock,but tells me larger orders will be delayed a little as this will necessitate cutting to order.Everything is thickness sanded not just saw cut.I did discuss with him the possibility of supplying a 'timbering package' in the future as I do have HMS Sussex to build,fully framed.The frames work out at 9/32 inch thick and he does say for a large order custom cutting and thickness sanding is not a problem.I have no connection to the company,i just want to pass on the details as he comes across as being a 'breath of fresh air' for modelers in the UK wanting more exotic timbers,mainly Pear.He doesn't have a fancy 'add to cart' website preferring to take card details by phone.Here is the link which lists the 'stock' sizes of what he offers. http://www.twigfolly.com/ Kind Regards Nigel
