Where To Buy Wood for Woodworking

This map details timber suppliers around the world that provide material for craft based industries. If you believe something is missing from this list, please provide me with a name, postcode and website in the comment section at the bottom of the page.

This map displays timber suppliers who provide material for professions and crafts such as cabinet making, luthiery, carving and woodturning etc. These professions tend to require higher quality hardwoods and softwoods, both native and exotic, compared to other construction based industries.

It does not display suppliers of construction grade timber and sheet goods as these tend to be easier to find through a search engine such as Google. 

What have I missed?
Do you have any other suggestions of places that should be on this list?

Please put suggestions in the comment box below and provide the following details:

Company / Individual Name

Postcode and Address

Website Details

Please ensure your suggestions match the criteria of a timber supplier for a craft based profession as opposed to construction!


  • Anyone know of a wood yard in SW France in the Charente that supplies high quality wood?

  • At the moment, the map doesn’t seem to have any suppliers marked on it, just the usual roads, towns, cities and so on. I’d originally thought it was an iOS thing, but t’s the same on a desktop PC.

  • I know they are a big chain company, but might be worth adding Arnold Laver
    They have 16 depts across the UK, and while it looks like they are set up to supply the trade, they will sell to indivduals (although I am not sure on their cost).

    They also said they can get just about any hardwood you want.
