Traditional framing methods have been successfully used in the construction of buildings for a millennia. At UK Timber Limited our Sawyers and TRADA Graders have decades of experience between them, enabling us to accommodate almost any request in the shortest time frame across the industry with an eye for both the quality of the material that is being used and the finished product.
We’ve supplied the machined timber for use in many structural applications including 'Grand Designs' projects, historic stately homes and smaller home builds the length and breadth of the UK - Our Customer Projects Gallery will give you an overall view of the services and products that we can offer you.
All of our structural timber is cut on site from both Oak and Douglas Fir, both materials offering their own specific traits; please feel free to contact our knowledgeable Sales Team to discuss which will suit your requirements the best and for advice that you can rely on.
UK Timber is one of the UK's leading stockists of high quality oak beams and oak boards.
We operate nationwide, offering both Air-Dried and Fresh Sawn Oak Beams, as well as Fresh Sawn Oak Boards, Air Dried Oak Boards and Kiln-Dried Oak Boards.
We use Green English/European Oak for our beams and boards, a popular building material throughout England, as it affords great strength and durability, has a high moisture content and offers great resistance to decay whilst requiring no chemical treatments. All of this as well as being maintenance free and eco-friendly.

Fresh Sawn Air-Dried Kiln-Dried Adaptable for many various projects Used for framing and restoration For internal use Used where some movement and shrinkage is permitted Suitable for more sensitive situations Kiln drying allows the timber to dry uniformly and to the precise moisture content required It dries slowly and adjusts naturally The beams are dried in square sections for 1-4 years Can be machined to a more superior finish Appropriate for projects that require an aged aesthetic Minimal acclimitisation required Suitable for finishing immediately
