First rate job Reviewed by Mrs H on 14 Aug 2016
Having had difficulty finding someone locally to cut my windowsills, I found this company online and I wasn't disappointed. They produced beautifully prepared window ledges that I couldn't bring myself to paint as the wood is so lovely!!
Good quality timber and very convenient Reviewed by Bad Beagle on 28 Jun 2016

Well pleased model maker Reviewed by GBS on 23 Jun 2016
This was the first occasion that I have used this company and I would make no hesitation in recommending it to fellow discerning woodworkers. I use Beech for making wooden models of vintage, construction and military vehicles. My local supplier has ceased trading so I decided to try Woodshopdirect after searching long and hard on the web. I am well pleased with the quality of the timber, knot free with no splits or warps. Cut to accurate dimensions it was delivered in very speedy fashion and well protected in bubble wrap, perfect for my needs. The quality of the product is reflected in the pricing but it is exactly what I require and will with no doubt be back for more in the future.
Quality Offering Reviewed by Brian on 22 Mar 2016
Timber was delivered promptly and the packaging was excellent. machining was accurate. It seems churlish not to give 5 stars but the price, an essential element of the offering, was far too high.
