About Reid Timber

Limited shop opening has resumed, Wednesday and Saturdays 10 till 3pm

Shop opening reflects the day to day changes in lockdown rules so be aware

of whether you are allowed to visit and what you are allowed to purchase (essential supplies)

I think that I can open for hardware and construction materials but not for non essential items.

Please check before travelling whether your visit is legal.

Also why has everyone stopped wearing masks,


Shipping to Northern Ireland is now exporting for customs purposes, I've stopped

offering most lines due to length, weight, prohibited item, CITES concerns or the fact that

filling out a bunch of forms in triplicate is a massive pain.

Gunstock Blanks do now ship to the north and

I'll add more lines as time allows but it will require editing each product

and not everything will be available,


Mail order continues as normal

please note:- I'm not able to cut and ship custom sizes, plenty of online stores do and

a search for "wood cut to size" or something similar will find them.

A range of popular guitar blanks and all the slight seconds are on sale

in the shop during opening hours, the internet stock isn't available in store.


The shop contains a range of dressed boards up to 3m long

plus a variety of smaller pieces, spindles and bowl blanks and some native timbers,

plus wood finishes and abrasives.

Here's some of the most frequently asked questions

Q When are you open.

A See website


Q I'm going to visit the shop what is your postcode

A See website


Q Your website doesn't mention xxx do you have any xxx

A No, I don't have secret stock. New arrivals are listed of facebook while I prepare them for listing on the site.


Q Can I order over the phone/ pay by cheque/ order a custom size, reserve an item etc etc

A No automating the selling process allows me to keep the prices down.


Q Can you line up all the xxx blanks and take photographs so I can pick the best one.

A Again this would push the prices right up, Plenty of places do photograph their items and are easy to find.


Q Can you make up a cutting list.

A No I've got a huge backlog of my own machining to do. Internet search "wood cut to size" to find plenty of places that do.


Q I've got a bit of wood in the car, can you put it through your thicknesser, cut it to size and give it a sand.

A I've got a huge backlog of my own machining to do.
