Raw Timber / Wholesale PDF Print
The wholesale division provides raw material to furniture manufacturers, cabinetmakers, joinery and kitchen manufacturers in bulk volumes.

We stock timber species from all continents with the main species being of American, Asian and African origin.
We strive to achieve good quality products of the highest standards possible, in line with the grading rules that apply from those countries of origin.
As an example, we include the American timber grading rules (Oak, Maple, Cherry, Walnut, Ash, Beech, Pau Marfim, Mahogany) and the Asian grading rules (Meranti, Balau, Merbau, etc).
There are no specific African grading rules for hardwoods, but as a guideline Bedson uses two qualities based on defects, and sapwood presence in a board, as is the case of Kiaat, Rosewood and Teak.
