Boat building

Black Dog Timber is dedicated to supplying the timber that boat builders need but find so incredibly hard to get.

We like to think that we know a bit about wooden boats, and are very keen to make the life of the builder and restorer easier in any way we can.

We do try to preserve the bendy bits as well as the good straight stuff, so please give us a call or email and let us know what you need.

If you are regularly building the same type of boat to a particular specification – or even if this one is a one-off - please send us your templates.

Our mill can cope with lengths of up to 20’6” (6.3 metres) in its mobile form, up to 40’ (12.1 metres) with the bed extension fitted, and, as you will see from the photos, over fifty feet if necessary!

The width of cut is up to 27” (which equates to milling a log about three feet in diameter without having to reduce or cleave it) and - with cunning - we can mill quite a reasonable bend.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements.
