On Friday 20th November 2020, iWood's telephone system is being upgraded and we expect some downtime on the phones at some point during the day. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any trouble getting through on the phones, but we hope for a speedy switchover.
Covid-19 - 24/11/2020 - Just a note to say iWood Timber will remain open again through this lockdown as we supply the construction industry.

We're currently experiencing a high volume of orders, and with Covid restrictions in place,
we're currently working to a lead time of 14-28 working days
(some products have longer lead times as described in their individual descriptions).
Local oak and ready planed oak from iWood provide perfect ‘fingers’ for Dorset’s heritage ‘Fingerposts’.
These traditional road signs with cast alloy letters on wooden boards are falling into disrepair but many are now being refurbished by local parishes and volunteers.
As seen on TV – Escape to the Country
In many cases the old ‘fingers’ are broken or missing including the top finial. These too are being replaced with a new casting – each one unique with its place name and OS grid Reference.
Indeed, Dorset has four unique ‘Red Posts’ originally used to mark an inn or resting house for convicts and their guards on their way to deportation!
Thanks to this project established by Dorset’s AONB, over 100 of the Fingerposts have already been restored by many volunteers to their former glory.
