Does anyone have experience of and recommendation for a supplier of
kiln dried ash in the UK. Preferably in Scotland but a reliable
supplier anywhere in the country would be of interest.
My project is a set of dining chairs and I need ash that I can resaw to
smaller dimensions without having it twist as soon as it's cut.
Any recommendations much appreciated. TIA
Robbins Timber, Bristol. http://www.robbins.co.uk /. 0117 963 7927.
Lathams. http://lathamtimber.co.uk .
I use both of these myself to supply my small but perfectly formed
commercial joiner's shop, and have always been very pleased with the timbers
that have turned up.

OTOH, you're the only person I know who still rates Robbins. I find them
to be over-priced, unhelpful, slow and particularly unskilled at any
machining, and selling a wide range of poor quality import timbers. If
you're in the Brissel aerial, try http://www.interestingtimbers.co.uk or
I'm also puzzled as to why you'd want _kilned_ ash. English ash is a
pretty stable timber and famously dry straight off the tree. It air
dries beautifully and quickly.
