Quarter Sawn Red Oak Available Now

Friday, June 26, 2015

A fantastic material that is experiencing a resurgence in the UK, Thorogood Timber are proud to offer quarter sawn 20mm red oak for furniture and cabinetry. Sourced from Horizon Wood Products, the same carefully saw mill in America as our fantastic cherry and black walnut, our red oak is cut and processed with the same tried and tested techniques to yield the best quality boards. With a warm palette of ochre tones, this quarter sawn product is a singular and striking alternative to more familiar oak species. With comparable qualities to American white oak, but distinctive colouration, Thorogood’s quarter sawn American red oak represents an additional option in the wood workers arsenal for achieving a unique look on interior joinery projects.


A revolutionary new unloading service from Thorogoods

Thursday, June 26, 2014

We have recently taken delivery of our new Moffett truck mounted fork-lift, which enables us to transfer loads of up to 2.5 tonnes on paved surfaces and on off-road conditions. The forklift is mounted on the rear of a truck or its platform, and can be dismounted in less than one minute.

For customers this means that we can now deliver and unload your timber orders without the need for you to hire extra equipment on site, or arrange sufficient man power to unload heavy material – ideal for products such as constructional oak. This video clip shows the off-road capability of the Moffett forklift – and how it makes short work of the muddy and hilly sections of a test track in Ireland, even carrying a full payload. If you are interested in using our new service, please call us to discuss on 01206 233100.
