**Timber prices ***Back to Home Page*

**Our large showroom has many hundreds of boards all
individually priced for you to select from.**

If you want
to know how we work out the price for each board our pricing policy is detailed
below. From time-to-time due to an
overstock or other factors some reduced price bargains may be available.

**Traditionally seasoned (air
dried) **

The list
below gives the price per cubic foot for most of the species we stock. Prices exclude VAT at 20%. For help on working out cubic feet see the
bottom of this page.

Remember,
when working out costs, that we can only sell whole boards. This can be quite a significant factor if for
example you happen to be constructing something that needs boards 5 feet long
and the stock we have is 8 feet long. We
often have a few random other sizes but our main stock of air dried hardwood
will be in standard lengths (between 8 and 9 feet usually – 2.4 to 2.7 metres).

**Kiln dried **

Kiln dried
timber is priced the same way as air dried but the cost is 15% higher. Most of our timber is air dried, though we do
sometimes kiln dry for larger orders.

All the
prices below are for air dried timber; add 15% for kiln dried (when available).

Certain
specialist types of timber are sometimes available at higher prices than above
such as burrs, quarter-sawn, or special grain.
These are quoted individually.

**Cubic feet calculation**

To work out
how many cubic feet a piece of wood is, follow this method. Measure the piece of wood in inches. Multiply the length by the width by the
thickness – this will give you the number of cubic inches. Divide this figure by 1728 and this is the
number of cubic feet. For example a
board 7 feet long (84 inches) and 8 inches wide and 2 inches thick is 1344
cubic inches. 1344 divided by 1728 is
0.77 cubic feet – or to put it another way just over three quarters of a cubic
foot.

**Turning cubic feet into ££££**

If this
board is say Sycamore then multiply the price above (£25) by 0.77 and you have the price for the board: £19.25. Finally add VAT (multiply by 1.2) which in
this case gives a final price of £23.10.
