Important Jet Machinery Promotions Update July 2016

Due to the drop in the value of the pound Jet Machinery have withdrawn their current list of woodworking machinery offers with immediate effect.

In addition, Jet Machinery have increased their current price list by 9% on all the current items listed in their catalogue.

We apologise for this unforeseen action and are therefore unable to offer any of the previously publicised Jet Machinery promotions.

Summer News Letter

Brodies Timber Newsletter – Summer 2016

Summer is coming and along with the sunshine we have been enjoying the fruits of our labour!

The air dried Spalted Beech, which has been drying over the last year in our purpose built drying shed has now reached a 10% moisture content. The boards look maspaltgnificent with great character and even spalt markings and are now available in the shop in various thicknesses and widths.

The Perthshire Oak which was milled at the same time, is also looking superb, with lovely markings and pip. It is still air drying, but if you are in the mood for a garden project, it is ideal for an outdoor building project this summer. Various widths and thicknesses available.

We have been delighted to commission some amazing pictures courtesy of David Brown Photography, cataloging some of our work in situ. It has been fantastic to see the workshdwb16_brodies_037op so busy with bespoke builds over the last few months.

Our custom made doors have been extremely popular, with us building door sets in Tulip, Douglas Fir, Sapele, Accoya and Scottish and Pippy oak recently.

Purple Heart

Purple Heart

Purple Heart – Hugely popular with wood turners, this attractive and colourful hardwood is bright purple deepening to a purplish brown on exposure.
Hard, dense and heavy, Purpleheart is is known for it’s pungent aroma.
From Central and Northern South America.



Meranti – A pinkish red hardwood with a coarse but even texture and interlocking grain.
 From the mahogany family, this timber is commonly used in furniture or joinery products with the capacity and durability for indoor and outdoor uses.
From South East Asia

Douglas Fir

Douglas Fir

Douglas Fir
A softwood which has a generally very visible grain either straight or sometimes slightly wavy. Medium to coarse in texture, Douglas fir is a versatile softwood which is good for use internally and externally.



Wenge – A very dense and heavy hardwood,  with a deep brownish reddish colour, with nearly black streaks. Upon application of a wood finish (particularly an oil finish) the wood can become nearly black.
Wenge has a fairly interesting grain pattern with a coarse texture.
Used in furniture making, instrument making and wood turning.
From Central Africa

American White Oak

American White Oak

Slowly grown, American White Oak is one of our most popular timbers. The grain is generally straight and the texture varies from coarse to medium coarse.
Used for a wide variety of purposes including furniture making, exterior and interior joinery work, cabinet making, flooring and decorative pieces.
Also used in cooperage, as white oak is seen as the only satisfactory container for beer wine and alcoholic spirits!
Ranging in colour from pale yellow – brown to pale reddish brown.  From North America.



Iroko – This very durable, dense timber has a distinct yellow colour. The grain is usually interlocked and the texture is rather coarse, but even.

Iroko has excellent strength properties, comparing well with Teak and working well with most tools.
Uses for Iroko include interior and exterior joinery, window frames, stair treads, fire-proof doors, furniture, carvings and even marine uses such as bridge building.
From Africa.

European Elm

European Elm

 European Elm – A beautifully coloured timber which varies from a dull brown in the heartwood to a lighter colour in the sapwood.

This is complimented by the irregular growth rings together with the cross grained character of the wood, giving a very attractive appearance. Looks lovely when polished.
A fairly difficult timber to work, but produces excellent results when used for furniture, turning wood ware such as bowls and feature pieces in internal joinery.
From Europe.

Black Walnut

Black Walnut

A stunning dense timber, American Black Walnut can vary in colour from a pale brown in the sapwood to a rich chocolate brown or even purplish black in the heartwood.
The timber has a fine even texture with a relatively coarse grain.
Uses include furniture, cabinets, musical instruments and decorative veneers.
From America.



A hard timber with a straight grain, American Cherry is a light reddish brown with the sapwood being a lighter pink colour.
Fine, narrow, brown coloured pith flecks are a common feature. It is moderately durable, works fairly easily, turns well and takes an excellent polish.
Because of its beautiful grain and colour, the uses for Cherry tend to be for cabinet and furniture making, musical instruments, boat interiors, high class joinery and even tobacco pipes.  From America.



Sycamore is a white or yellowish white coloured wood with a natural luster. It is generally straight grained but may be curly or wavy grained with a fine texture.
Fairly easy to work and machine, it is capable of a fine smooth finish when straight grained. It turns excellently and can be glued, stained and polished.
Used for turning, handles, furniture and flooring in addition to decorative veneers and decorative finishes in musical instruments.
From Europe.
