Italy European Oak Trip

By Timber Connection/ 10 April 2017

As the demand of European White Oak remains strong in the UK, Danny, Keeley, Selina and Hayley visited Italy last month to visit new and existing suppliers and acquire a better understanding of each producer’s individual grading.

European Oak grades continues to be a challenge due to the vast variation in each sawmills grading rules – one suppliers Joinery grade could be another’s Prime grade. After spending time with the individual Sawmills turning over Timber we have a better understanding of how our supplier’s grades compare and can more confidently communicate this to our customers.

We have over 57 loads of European White Oak in stock with varying grades from Vertical Grain, Super Prime, Prime, Prime 1 Face, Joinery, FAS, Light Rustic and Heavy Rustic. We have thicknesses from 26mm through to 100mm.

At Timber Connection, we are continually looking at ways to improve both our customers’ expectations and trying to find the suitable supply partner to meet these ongoing requests.
