Cut to size sheet materials and timber supplies

"We order our timber and many of our ancillary materials from Timberite and make regular use of their cutting service, providing board sized to fit our machinery and occasional large orders for student projects and end of year shows. Quality is consistently good and the staff are always courteous and accommodating, often making deliveries at short notice in response to our varied demands. In short Timberite is an excellent and reasonably priced timber and hardware resource for any workshop."
