**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.

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 (£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.
