We started our business in 2018. We are a small family business working from the grounds of Crichie Estate, Stuartfield in rural Aberdeenshire. We offer a range of native Scottish hardwood as well as exotic timber at affordable prices to businesses and individual craftspeople.
We aim to promote bringing woodlands into management by purchasing the majority of our wood through local estate owners, private land owners, local authorities and other groups, to provide an outlet for such timbers that prevents these from being processed as firewood thus promoting the economic and sustainable production of timber and timber products through processing. We are committed to ensuring that the timber extraction associated with the products we sell does not harm forest conservation. We remain committed to sourcing timber only from proven, well-managed forests.
We have a diverse range of customers and now thanks to our growing reputation we send our timbers worldwide.
We aim to provide the very best products and services we can at prices that are transparent and competitive, we have a growing reputation from our quality and consistency. We have a wide range of quality services where understanding our customers’ requirements is our main focus.
WP Hardwood is proud to be a member of Grown in Britain. Grown in Britain is the only certification scheme that provides assurance of homegrown timber and timber products from the UK.
Our native woodlands are one of the most spectacular and characteristic elements of the Scottish landscape - from the vast Caledonian pinewoods and birch woods in Highland glens to the ancient broadleaved woods in the borders. At WP Hardwood Ltd we have a real passion for the natural resources we have in our great country.
We offer a variety of kiln dried natural edge boards. From logs sawn through and through these are full width, full length boards with natural edges. Our stock is extensive and constantly changing across all species and dimensions. Whether you are a bespoke furniture maker, a specialist joiner, a kitchen maker or you just want a plank of raw wood for a table top, our natural edge board stock is fabulous and will give your project the edge over a more standardised source of timber. We are always happy for our customers to visit our workshop and select your own timber. We are also more than happy to pick the timber to your specifications and have it processed and delivered. Each kiln dried natural edge board is unique.
Looking to buy in bulk? Does your business require something special? That’s no problem, we can offer bespoke cuts in large quantities to suit your needs. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
We have curated several stunning examples of work by local artists to inspire and motivate you to create your own bespoke piece. Come and take a look, and let your imagination run wild with the natural beauty of wood.
Everyone needs to start somewhere. Don’t let a lack of knowledge hold you back from creating something special. We have put together a knowledge base so you can get to know the tools, the materials and finishing tips so you can start your own projects. Even if you are an experienced woodworker, there is something for everyone here.
We like to keep our customers informed of upcoming deliveries, projects and news, and we will post items regularly here for you to read. If you have anything you would like to share, please don’t hesitate to contact us, we would love to hear from you.

‘WP Hardwoods Ltd continually provides me with a great professional service supplying quality home grown timber at competitive prices’
‘I took up the hobby of woodturning back in February 2019and was looking for a supplier of turning blanks. I happened across WP Hardwoods via a Google search and, after initial contact, have been buying regularly from them since. The quality and variety of the products has been topnotch, well-priced and the after-sales service excellent. A mark of the faith I have in this supplier is the repeat business I have sent their way. Highly recommended.’
