Let’s face it, visiting a timber merchant for the first time can be terrifying. How does it work? What do you do? Where do you go? So many questions have to be found out the hard way.
In this series, I am going to settle that confusion. I am going to be visiting various timber merchants around the UK in order to get a broad view as to how they all work, what to expect, and how to go about purchasing timber.
This will allow you to fully prepare yourself before visiting a timber merchant, and make informed decisions while you are there.
In this video, we are visiting Surrey Timbers who are located just below Guildford. This is my favourite timber merchant for spectacular one-off pieces and is the perfect starting point for someone who is intimidated by timber merchants. Brad was kind enough to give me a tout and show what they stock, what they offer, and what to do when you get there.

My name is Matt Estlea, I’m a 22 year old Woodworker from Basingstoke in England and my aim is to make your woodworking less s***.
I come from 5 years tuition at Rycotewood Furniture Centre and 4 years experience working at Axminster Tools and Machinery where I still currently work on weekends. During the week, I film woodworking projects, tutorials, reviews and a viewer favourite ‘Tool Duel’ where I compare two cometitive manufacturers tools against one another to find out which is best.
I like to have a laugh and my videos are quite fast paced BUT you will learn a lot, I assure you.
Lets go make a mess.
