                  Handmade Furniture and English Timber Sales                                                    


It's over ten years since Forest 2 Furniture was conceived and in the beginning our aim was to turn storm damaged & other unwanted trees into traditional handmade English furniture with a difference by creating an exclusive and unique collection of Functional Art.

Although this is still our aim, we soon discovered there are far to many trees being destroyed for lack of a viable alternative.
So, although we still make individual pieces of functional art we also now sell milled timber for others to create their dreams.

Our Timber



Most of our timber is cut from storm damaged trees such as Oak, Yew, Holly and Sweet Chestnut grown in and around The Dukeries and Sherwood Forest.

Care and consideration are given to grain patterns when milling each section of tree, we mill for quality not quantity.

In most cases, because we work closely with woodland owners and managers, we can not only tell you when the tree fell, we will also be able to say when it was planted, as is the case of the  Sweet Chestnut that blew down during high winds in 2007 but was planted in the 1660's at the beginning of the Restoration period, making the tree some 350 years old.

One of the key points about our timber is that none of it comes from timber plantations, none of it has been grown solely for timber harvesting.

So, when sourcing timber for your next project why not check out our Artisan Wood Barn.

Yew Hedge Trimmings - important notice:
