Cut to Size / Planed European Oak Timber
European Oak, or French Oak, is grown across the whole country, but we predominantly source timber from the Burgundy and Dole regions. That's because this area of France is close to the Swiss border and the trees here tend to grow more slowly due to the relatively harsh conditions. This gives the timber a consistent golden-brown colour so you'll tend to have less variation within your order.
Ordering European Oak Timber
