We can supply large sections of green oak, larch and douglas fir machined to size depending on the customer’s specification. Oak log lengths will vary, the mills work with green oak logs imported from France and log lengths usually vary between 3.6m and 7.2 metres.
Section sizes will depend on log availability, maximum widths tend to be between 250mm and 350mm. The oak logs are generally cut down to approximate sizes on the first saw and then finished on another machine. Most oak is fine sawn but some finishing will be required by the customer, inevitably even a small contact on steel forks will mean the oak has black marks on them which will need sanding.
In some of the attached images an oak bridge can be seen at different stages of construction. One of our established customers approached us with plans and a detailed cutting sheet for a proposed tender. The project was all in green oak, because there was a reasonable volume we were able to select from a wider range of mills who could cut the volume and quality of oak required for this build.
From tender to acceptance seemed remarkably short and the instructions were issued to the French mill responsible for cutting the oak. The timber was delivered on schedule, further machining and finishing was then undertaken by the customer here in Devon. All joints were cut and pre-assembled before the bridge was finally assembled.
