Our expertise

Lee setup Woodwise Uk in 2008 after almost 15 years working in the exotic wood trade. It started at a young age when wood turning was introduced to him by an old friend and world renowned professional wood turner Jimmy Clewes. He then spent several years working at a local sawmill gaining the necessary knowledge and experience, which has brought us to where we are today.

We operate on a very relaxed and friendly approach. Our wood store is open 6 days a week 10am until 5pm Mon-Fri, 10am-4pm Sat, but please ring and let us know before hand. We much prefer our customers to pop in have a cuppa and select their timbers, but for the majority who are not able to, you can be assured our mail order customers both UK based and overseas, have only good things to say about Woodwise Uk.
