Prime Quality European Lightly Steamed Beech - Planed All Round Timber

Planed all round graphic

Planed-all-round (PAR) European Beech is ideal for furniture (tables, chairs, cabinets) including contract furniture for schools, hospitals, government builds etc, toys, tool handles, interior joinery and interior construction.

Our Beech is lightly steamed after it is cut from the log (so before it has chance to dry) in order to turn it reddish-brown colour which has become an essential characteristic of European Beech. Without steaming, the wood’s natural colour is a much paler cream.

A few of European Beech’s outstanding characteristics are Its:

  1. Bending capabilities
  2. Workability – Beech machines, glues, finishes and turns well
  3. Hardness
  4. Wear resistance
  5. Strength

Our planed all round European Beech is supplied ready for you to work with. We plane down to your measurements leaving a smooth surface across the face of the timber. We can provide PAR Beech up to 3m long and up to 74mm x 244mm (EX 80mm x 250mm) in section size.

When working out your prices it is important to enter the exact sizes you need as these are the size we will plane down to (apart from in the length where the ends are left rough sawn and the planks are supplied slightly over length to be cut down). Also remember that two pieces maybe cheaper than one piece that is the same length as the two combined.

At iWood Timber Merchants we have built our reputation on supplying quality timber, ensuring you have the greatest % of usable European Beech Planed Timber possible.

The European Beech Tree

The Beech tree holds a very special place in the environment and is essential to its habitat not only for itself but other trees as well. Known as the “Mother of The Forest” beech trees help other hardwoods to survive because rain drip from their leaves destroys many weeds which would otherwise drain the soil of vital nutrients. The shade of its canopy also helps to prevent over-evaporation of moisture from soil.

Beech trees can stand up to 45m tall with a trunk averaging 1.2m diameter (occasionally more). It has a wide distribution across central Europe and in Britain.
