Structural heavy turned green oak timber posts & columns

We can machine heavy timber into hexagonal or octagonal columns and we can also turn heavy posts for use as structural posts in timber framed projects or as decorative columns.

Below is a pair of turned softwood posts shown on the lathe and in place after painting. Thank you to our favourite children's author for the photo!

This green oak pillar has been fine sanded and waxed and would be a striking centre column for a spiral staircase or grand structural pillars.

The timber is shown being sawmilled as an octagonal post .

1. 'The Regency'. This style of gate, which we only make in seasoned air dried oak, is made using loose panels set within a frame. The same technique is used to make traditional English wall panelling. The maximum size for this style of gate is 6ft wide x 6ft 6in high.

2. 'The Yelverton'. This style of gate is available in seasoned air dried Oak or Iroko.

 

4. 'The Bideford'. This style of gate can also be made from seasoned Oak or Iroko.
