Our Sawmill 

The Finest Timbers, Sustainably Sourced


We pride ourselves on producing the very best-quality timber for posterity. Our timber is sawn to size and cut on-site. The best quality pieces are cut on our Mebor 1200 saw, meticulously stored and air dried and then finished in a wood kiln to produce constant top quality, ready-to-use timber.

In Addition,

Our fascination with trees had led us to acquire some extraordinary tropical hardwood trunks.  Up to 20 tons in weight and 30 feet long, they are cut and dried to produce exotic timber pieces for exotic uses: afzelia, padouk, wenge and utile, to name but a few.
