Timber Real Wood Sample Fan

Your price

Estimated dispatch 15/12/2023

Don’t just imagine your next timber project, but see and feel the wood before you make the decision. With our exclusive Timber Sample Fan, you'll get 15 high-quality pieces of real wood samples; each piece measuring 35mm by 150mm by 2·5mm thick (approx.). Ideal for planning, design and use as a discussion aid for use with colleagues and customers.

Each fan contains one sample each of our most popular hardwood and softwood timbers: Maple, Ash, American Oak, Walnut, Poplar, Cherry, European Oak, Yellow Pine, Iroko, Utile, Douglas Fir, Obeche, Steamed Beech, Idigbo and Accoya clearly labelled for reference. Natural light will over time affect the appearance of all timbers; storing the fan closed when not in use will help to maintain the fresh-cut appearance.

These fans are samples of unfinished wood and as such can only be an indication of the appearance of another piece of wood from the same spices. Each piece of wood is a natural product and as such unique. Some variation in grain patterns, knots, sapwood and colour must be expected.

  • Hardwood and softwood sample pieces
  • Great for making an informed decision on your timber purchase
  • Each piece measures 35mm x 150mm x 2·5mm thick (approx.)
  • Important: natural light will over time affect the appearance of all timbers

Uses: Internal Joinery, External Joinery

Excellent sample tool for our clients

by Sharon B (08/02/2022)

It's often difficult to describe the look and feel of timber to a client that knows little of the material. This is a great little sample fan to have.

Handy little reference

Good to have in your workshop when planning projects.

Handy tool to have as it helps makng a decision.

by Timwhe.tw (05/11/2020)

Very happy with the prompt delivery service and impressed with the fans quality. This should help me decide which would to use for various applications I have in mind. I would however suggest that you enclose a brief overview on each wood detailing durability, effects of aging and environment, and importantly ease or difficulty in the various methods of fixing, i.e screws, nails, tacks, glue Etc.

Simple and useful

Clear labelling, handy size, very useful.

nice size so gives a good idea of the colours and touch feel of a large portion of the various woods that are sold.

Very handy for architects/designers/joiners

Best way to compare woods

by Alison (11/15/2019)

This is such a clever and effective idea as the fan shows you immediately the varying differences in wood colours and grain. Brilliant! Well worth the small investment. Arrived very promptly
