As demand for our timber structures increased over the years, we found ourself facing the dilemma of finding a reliable source of sawn oak that could cope with our level of demand, particularly for oak decking. Rather than relying upon external suppliers, we bought machines to mill our own wood and now operate a specialist hardwood sawmill under the name of Quercast Sawmilling. Based in Norfolk, hardwood suppliers are few and far between, but we also offer UK-wide delivery and a mobile sawmill service so that we can serve the whole country. If you are looking for sawn hardwood or a mobile sawmill service, please get in contact with us or visit Quercast Sawmilling.
At The Wild Deck Company we choose not to use treated softwood which has proved to be low quality and non-durable, especially with tightening environmental restrictions concerning the use of timber treatments. Instead, we favour traditional English hardwoods for their increased durability and less damaging impact upon the environment, something very important to us. For this reason, Quercast Sawmilling is a specialist hardwood sawmill, although we will also saw select softwood timbers that have similar properties to hardwood such as larch and Douglas fir. Furthering our commitment to the environment, suitable rips will be re-sawn whilst unusable material will be used as firewood or chipped for use in biomass boilers. Much of our stock is from over-stood coppices in Kent, Sussex, and Surry, and we are proud to be responsible for putting nearly 4 acres of neglected coppice back into the coppicing cycle.
Our Sawmill is capable of cutting up whole tree trunks into almost any thickness that you could need. At the smaller end of our cutting capabilities, we regularly cut 100mm featheredged board, 5mm at the thin side and 15mm at the thick side, however we can handle extremely large cuts as listed below:
In addition to offering a Norfolk based oak sawmill, we also offer a mobile sawmill service across the UK if you have a large quantity of timber that needs to be cut at your site. We are able to provide the same cutting capabilities as above and will send a team of dedicated sawmill professionals to operate the mill at your site.
We offer all forms of timber services normally associated with a sawmill. These include, but are not limited to:
We offer UK delivery for everything we supply, although you can also arrange local pick up from our sawmill site if you prefer to transport the timber yourself.
If you are in need of a hardwood sawmill or any of the timber services listed, please get in contact with us or visit Quercast Sawmilling to find out more. We look forward to hearing from you and providing the timber that you are looking for.
