Cut to spec oak logs

One of the services we offer is to mill entire trees to your specification, this works out to be quite a cost effective method of sourcing timber. We have a good selection of oak logs available all year around from which you can select your preferred one, we will then mill the log to your required sections, e.g. 1/2″, 5/8″, 1″, 11/4″, 11/2″, 2″, 2.5″, 3″, 4″, these will all be Quartersawn, we find it best to cut a selection of 3-4 thicknesses as this gives a good quantity of each depending on the project you have in mind, the timber is then yours to collect, stick, and season yourself, this we recommend takes 1 year per inch plus a year and we can give you as much advice as possible upon enqiring, these are all large English oak trees specifically sourced for quartersawing. Through this method we can supply you with a minimum of one quarter, half a log (2 quarters), a whole or several logs depending on your requirements. To enquire please call or email on the above details.

Quarter-Sawing our Oak trees

(please click title to view images) Here we see Austin quartering the last of the Oak trees from our latest shipment, using our Husqvarna 120xp chainsaw and quartering jigs. This tree was over 33″ in diameter and showed off some fantastic figuring, it has primarily been planked in to 1/2″ (our speciality) to be used for panelling aswell as some beautiful 1″ boards, that has all now been stacked and sticked under cover to air season. The 1/2″ will be ready for use in 6-8 months and the 1″ in 1-1 1/2 years, we will be keeping an eye on the moisture content (M/C) until then, and we are really looking forward to continue using the best quarter-sawn oak available anywhere!

No minimum order

Here at the Quartersawn Oak company we have NO minimum order, we will happily give you a price for any sizes that you require. As a professional cabinet making business we can supply complex cutting lists, so if your making a 6″ square bread board or a 8ft Welsh dresser we can accommodate you.
