Sawmill by-products

At NPWP we not only source our timber as locally as possible to reduce our "log miles" and the impact of transportation on the environment, we also strive use every part of the timber. In order to achieve these objectives we sell a range of by-products. Availability of these by-products may be seasonal and will depend on the type of timber being used at any given time. The charge for these products primarily reflects the cost of processing, packaging and storing.

Workshop Offcuts.  These are a mixture of timbers, predominantly Green English Oak, sold in large "one ton" builders bags. This timber will require further drying if it is to be used as firewood.

Oak Slabwood. These are long (typically 4-5m) offcuts produced when “squaring” logs, and are sold in large bundles. Customers will need a large flat-bed lorry or trailer to collect. The slabwood will require sawing, spliting and drying before use as firewood.

Wood Wool. These are fine strands of Western Red Cedar, produced when cutting cross grain. It is traditionally used for packing china and other breakable items.

Oak Sawdust. This is uncontaminated sawdust, and can be used, amongst other things, for smoking fish or cheese. Sawdust from other varieties of timber is available from time to time.

Workshop Extraction Shavings.  These are shavings from mixed timbers and are available in large "one ton" builders bags. A typical use is for horse stables.
