Any timber merchants around your way? That's the only option around here now after the local hardware/wood shop shut.

Re: where to buy wood

There's Champion wood in most towns but I use Alsfords, they are cheaper and better quality control. B&Q, if you're prepared to sort you're own choice from the bent and warped pieces or Wickes, probably the cheapest anywhere, but again the quality is sometimes a bit cheap too.

I woundn't touch Homebase with a bent barge pole.

Re: where to buy wood

I recommend Wickes.

I use them a lot, very cheap too.
