"I'm new to Wood Carving, and wanted a small selection pack to get me started. The wood came perfectly packaged and very speedily. Your website is very well laid out and easy to use - to many things to choose from! Wish I could visit the shop but your too far away. Will definitely use G&S Timber again. Thank you."

"I live in Ireland and ordered a Peter Child pyrography machine and some Pfeil wood carving chisels from G&S specialist Timber. Everything was exactly as described on their web site. The service was fast and efficient and delivery was bang on time. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone thinking of purchasing their products."

"I ordered some pfeil carving tools after being let down by a different UK supplier and was so happy to receive them the next day in perfect condition. The dispatch and delivery time was really impressive and and will definitely be ordering more in the future. Thanks!"

"Can't fault them, great variety of products, wonderful customer services, and amazing delivery times. i asked them if they would be kind enough to cut some of the larger wood blocks to a certain size for me before sending (i don't have access to any large Saw tools) and not only did they say that they could do this, but they then put the size that I wanted for my projects, on to the website and a recurring product to purchase any time I wanted. Thanks guys"

"They get it right! I recently bought several blanks for woodturning from G&S. They arrived promptly and were safely packed. The blanks were well prepared and the wood was dry so that it didn't change shape significantly after I'd turned it. There were no splits or worm holes.
I have ordered from them before and shall again as I know that what they send will be right. It's just a shame that they don't have a wider choice of timber yet (nudge, nudge!) but what they do have is worth getting. Having bought from two other suppliers and had troubles with worm holes, splits and damp wood, I know I'm safe with G&S. Thanks, guys!"


"The order completion was friction free and the goods arrived well packed and undamaged on the stated day. If they treat a small order like this then I will certainly consider using G&S Specialist Timber again."

"My company has been using these guys for approx 12 months now. In all that time we have never been let down on the quality of the timber we use, the service and speed of every order has been superb and at a reasonable cost, all of these things matter as we are a small business and depend on other companies such as GS to supply only 1st class products and service. Long May our business relationship carry on."

"my order was a low cost, low value order for lime wood blanks, but it was obvious right from the start my order was treated with equal importance to much more important orders. From my initial enquiry through to delivery the staff were extremely helpful and courteous and I will have no hesitation in placing follow-up orders with this company. thanks again for your prompt response to my initial enquiry and speedy delivery"
