The Carpentry Store strives to provide premium quality timber. We understand that choosing the right material is essential. However, there are a few points that need to be taken into consideration and understood when you purchase timber.
Timber is a product of nature thus meaning that it is susceptible to movement, shrinkage and expansion and no two pieces are alike. Timber is obtained from different forests and can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species. The grain variation and knots seen on a board are due to the timber going through subsequent periods of growth. We do take care during the manufacturing process to put together boards of similar colour and grain variation but this is not always possible.
Please measure each piece carefully before starting your project.
