Summer News Letter

Brodies Timber Newsletter – Summer 2016

Summer is coming and along with the sunshine we have been enjoying the fruits of our labour!

The air dried Spalted Beech, which has been drying over the last year in our purpose built drying shed has now reached a 10% moisture content. The boards look maspaltgnificent with great character and even spalt markings and are now available in the shop in various thicknesses and widths.

The Perthshire Oak which was milled at the same time, is also looking superb, with lovely markings and pip. It is still air drying, but if you are in the mood for a garden project, it is ideal for an outdoor building project this summer. Various widths and thicknesses available.

We have been delighted to commission some amazing pictures courtesy of David Brown Photography, cataloging some of our work in situ. It has been fantastic to see the workshdwb16_brodies_037op so busy with bespoke builds over the last few months.

Our custom made doors have been extremely popular, with us building door sets in Tulip, Douglas Fir, Sapele, Accoya and Scottish and Pippy oak recently.

Whether you are after doors or dwb16_brodies_146tailor made worktops, tables or bespoke bookcases, we can design and work to your needs here in our workshop.

Thanks to all who recently liked and followed us on Facebook! It is a great way to keep up to date with all our news and pictures of what we’ve been up to.

If you are on Twitter, remember to follow us there too, as we are regular tweeters! Keep an eye out for Perthshire Hour on Twitter between 8-9pm on Wednesdays…

Finally, Don’t forget to book your diary for our Annual Scottish Woodworking Show at Brodies Timber!  Friday and Saturday 14th and 15th October 2016.

We are very excited by the interest from exhibitors and demonstrators this year….it promises to be our biggest yet!
