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 (8 foot/2.4 metre and less often 6 foot/1.8 metre). A few of our best sellers will sometimes also be in longer lengths, up to 12 feet/3.7 metre.

 

 

 

Kiln dried

 

Kiln dried timber is priced the same way as air dried but the cost is 15% higher. For help on working out cubic feet see the bottom of this page.

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 (22.50) by 0.77 and you have the price for the board: 17.33. Finally add VAT (multiply by 1.2) which in this case gives a final price of 20.80.
