Sheet Cutting and Timber Profiles

We offer an in-branch cutting service for our plywood, MDF, chipboard, and hardboard panel products where we can cut to size for you.

We can only cut strips and square panels. We cannot cut angles, apertures (holes or panels into the middle of a sheet) or circular pieces.

The blade is 4mm thick and so must be considered when calculating how many pieces can be cut from a sheet.

The sheet sizes will be in the description of the panel that you are purchasing.

We will only cut panels purchased from us, and you must purchase the cutting service at the same time as ordering your panels.

Each cut is £1.50 + VAT, but for complex jobs this may be calculated based on set-up and completion times.

We can also offer precision bulk sheet cutting from our Head Office where we have a computer guided beam saw. Contact us directly for more information.

Bespoke Timber Profiles

In addition to our range of standard profiles and mouldings, we can produce any bespoke mouldings to meet your exact specifications, size, and profile. Ranging from basic planed four-sided to exact finished dimensions, to complex architectural profiles for feature cornices and skirtings.

We can work with you on bespoke designs or match a profile from an existing sample. Our state-of-the-art machine shop will then produce an exact matching cutting tool that can be used again and again.

We can produce bespoke profiles and finished sized sections from a wide range of common and exotic species.

Some of the more common species include:

  • European Oak
  • American White Oak
  • Meranti
  • Southern Yellow Pine
  • Cedar
  • Beech
  • Ash

Prices vary depending on the amount of material required, the species of timber and the complexity of the profile. All machined specials are produced at our Head Office but can be delivered via your local Alsford Branch. Please allow a minimum of 14 working days from order confirmation.
