        Artisan Wood Barn


All our planked timber is milled and dried by ourselves and comes from trees that have been damaged in storms or have been felled for conservation or safety reasons, none of them had been grown for commercial use.

At present we can only offer air dried timber for sale but hopefully in the next few months our new kiln will be up and running and we'll be able to offer kiln dried timber as well.

With the exception of the London Plane/Lacewood, Walnut and Wych Elm all our timber has been sourced from trees grown within Sherwood Forest and The Dukeries.

We know the history of all our timber; where it was grown, when it fell, how old it was when it fell and in the case of some of the Sweet Chestnut who planted it and why!

Grown in Sherwood Forest

Sherwood Forest NNR is to have a new visitors centre and in order to build it several trees have had to be felled. 
Forest 2 Furniture has been able to purchase a number of the felled trees and over the next few weeks these trees will be milled.
The photos below show some of the timber milled so far.
