We are currently carrying out a review
of our timber prices
as it is now more than two years ago since we last did this.
A small increas can be expected, but it is our aim to remain
competitive and to represent good value for money. We expect
that the price increases will come into effect during August.
Stock Lists & Stock
As always, our up-to-date stock lists
and price list can be found at www.irishwoods.com/stockroom
on our website. We have revised the format of these stock lists
so that they are more comprehensive, they download rapidly (
in seconds) and so they are an even better guide to what we
have in stock at any given moment.
Currently there is about 435 cu ft of
dried timber, 621 cu ft of air
dried timber, 1157 cu ft of air drying timber (not for sale
until dry) and a number of
beams, stakes, PAOs and a few square
We milled about 60 tonnes of logs in
March. We are gathering in logs (including elm) now and hope
to be sawmilling again in the autumn.
The new building, which we plan to build
next year, will allow for the storage of greater amount of timber.
We have started to put together some
wood turning blanks for wood turners. There's a limited number
availableat the moment (See the list here).
However, very shortly we will be making more blanks. These are
be square blanks at the moment, but circular blanks will also
be available shortly. Blanks will be available as green (fresh/wet),
airdried and kiln dried and in several types of timber.
The hits are still coming fast and furious
and the web site (www.irishwoods.com)
is certainly the most usual way for our customers to find us.
