Quality oak beams, a quicker and simpler way of ordering

Get a quote for or order fresh cut timber now.

We supply fresh cut timber from our sawmill for endless different types of projects. To list a few; boat making, timber framing, construction building, cladding buildings, fencing and the list goes on. Whether it's a huge 12x9, 8-metre long beam for constructional work or a pack of thin boards to cover up an ugly wall, we can cut it for you. We take great care in selecting the best logs to be cut for your orders, with over one hundred years of experience in this area being a family run business of four generations. These carefully selected logs are then cut in our own sawmill by our experienced and skilled sawyer. After being cut and rolled through the mill, your freshly cut timber is then sorted into packs whilst ticking off each piece from the cutting list you supplied us with, making sure everything is up to the best possible standard.

We like to keep things simple and smooth at Nelson Butler and Son's so we have made it easy for you to order fresh cut timber, simply click the link below to be taken to the enquiry page, there you can message us a cutting list for some beams, a lineal meterage for some boards, a square metre total for some cladding or any other service request you may think of. An alternative to email is to give us a phone call.
We will get back to you with a quote within one to two days and once ordered we give roughly a week for cutting time until collection/delivery, this time may be shorter depending on when the order was put in, business of the yard at the time etc.
