nice quality wood - very well planed Reviewed by

I was hoping that this wood might be suitable for musical instrument making but I'm afraid it's not quite up to scratch. Very very good quality wood, though. Very well planed but it seems only flatsawn wood is available.


Great service Reviewed by

Good quality timber arrived promptly and well packed thanks


Problem solved. Thanks Reviewed by

Mine was a very small order to complete a project I was doing for my daughter. Due to the cut to size service she was able to complete the job after I was gone with a level of accuracy that neither of us could probably have achieved by hand. Also very good service when I needed to change the order by telephone after having started on line. Thanks

The quality of the Cedar was excellent and cut to the exact size required. This was my first order with WOODSHOPdirect but I would certainly recommend to my friends.


Weston Red Cedar Review Reviewed by

I am a new customer of Woodshop Direct having been recommended by a work colleague. The quality of Weston red cedar supplied was first class, dimensionally accurate, straight, clean and fit for purpose. It is extremely useful to be able to purchase cut to size timber for even the smallest of projects. The service provided by Woodshop Direct was faultless, packaging and delivery was very good. For customers who do not have full wood machining capabilities it is really helpful to have timber supplied to customers own specific dimensions. Based on this, my first experience of using Woodshop Direct, I would certainly recommend them to friends and colleagues who need to source quality timber cut to order. The Weston red cedar is being used to make two RSPB nest boxes in my own workshop.
