We were more than happy to help Men In Sheds Age Uk Cheshire by donating some of our offcuts and a 6ft log. Hopefully they will turn them into more amazing creations. Keep up the great work guys…
For this year’s RHS Flower Show Tatton Park, we were asked by Cheshire’s Gardens of Distinction to design a bench that makes people ‘FEEL GOOD’! The brief asked for a bench for show-goers to sit down, relax, connect with friends and family and learn something new.
We decided to use fallen timber from Delamere Forest after Storm Doris blew into the Forest early this year, bringing down many trees with her 90-mile an hour winds. The idea is to create an oasis of calm out of nature’s destruction.
Using galvanised legs for a hardwearing contemporary look, the bench also includes two smaller benches to sit on and a selection of rustic larch stools.
Choosing timber from Delamere Forest, which is a place for families to let off steam, escape the crowds and find peace in the heart of Cheshire also resonates with the benches ‘connect with friends and family’ theme. We all know how important it is to sit down with family and friends, enjoy good food and catch-up, especially in today’s hectic world.
Working in partnership worth Fryers Roses in Knutsford, the central area of the table, which follows the natural grain of the larch timber, was planted with a selection of herbs and plants to stimulate body and mind.
Over the show we watched visitors sit down, relax, meet friends and learn something new - all proven ways to make you FEEL GOOD. And we LOVED it when Mr & Mrs Flora popped by!!
We recently milled these bespoke sleepers for a project at a local children’s nursery. We often get asked to mill fresh timber for clients individual projects, when they are looking for some quality timber that is a ‘bit different’ or they have a specific specification in . Feel free to give us a call, we love hearing about your projects and finding solutions to our customers needs and requirements.
For a number of years we have worked with the team at Tatton Park to help maintain and manage the wonderful historic woodland. It’s one of our favourite work places and it’s also a privilege to be part of the woodlands future.
Our current woodland thinning project at Tatton not only helps to provide excellent firewood, but also produces fantastic sawlogs for our mill. Check out some pictures of Pete and Rod busy in the Park today.
If you have any woodland management requirements and would like to see your timber put to the best possible use, please pick up the phone and chat to Richard on 07774 799935 or email Richard@wainwrighttimber.co.uk.
We love it when our customers send pictures of our oak beams in situ, especially when they use the offcuts for matching owls!! Our customer fixed the beam to the wall with a custom made bracket which is rebated into the beam, 100mm wide flat steel plate 1000mm long with six x 120mm 15mm steel round bar pins. He then gave the remaining 1/3 of the beam to a friend who created a matching pair of owls for two posts on his gate field, brilliant!
Thanks to Dan for sharing his yew bar pictures. Dan choose some of our seasoned English character yew boards and made himself this attractive and well stocked bar! Feeling inspired, speak to us today about our English character yew boards.
Look what happens when you buy our larch waney edge cladding and our larch roof tiles….. and you add a very talented customer Rowan… You get this stunning rustic retreat. Rowan ordered 30 m2 of our single waney edge larch cladding and 13 m2 of our larch roof tiles and we LOVE what he has created. The perfect space to sit back and relax in beautiful Anglesey.
We worked with customer Tim Eves to supply a traditional alternative to standard fencing. Tim wanted a traditional rustic fence to compliment his beautiful garden and backdrop over the stunning Cornish landscape. So….Wainwright Timber supplied 120 cm larch boards and sent them to beautiful Cornwall. We LOVE how Tim has installed his fence and we hope it inspires you too. Chat to us today about your next project on 07846 794670 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Adam wanted to build a garden office, so we supplied him with some waney edge larch cladding. Adam then built this amazing garden office – it looks so cosy! Thanks for sharing Adam, we also LOVE the roof. Feeling inspired then give us a call on 07846 794670 and tell us about your next project.
ps. Here is what Adam said…
‘Hi Rebecca every time I look at it I’m so happy I bought the cladding of you as it looks great in its setting and natural just the way I wanted it. Hopefully I can show others what it can be used for, very happy. Looking forward to watching it turn into a lovely silver grey over the years.”
A recent cladding customer was keen to add a natural looking roof to their outdoor building and asked us for a solution. Voilà… Well done Tom for milling 321 larch roof tiles which are now on their way to the beautiful Island of Anglesey! Feeling inspired? Our larch roof tiles are 500 mm long, 150 mm wide and 10 mm thick at 66p each. We estimate you need aprox 33.3 tiles per m2 (5 tiles deep – with a 300 mm overlap – and aprox 6.6 tiles wide). And they are priced at £21.97 per m2. Speak to us today on 07846 794670 or email email@example.com
A big thank you to Stu in Northumberland for sending over the pictures and also taking the time to explain how he fixed it!
Stu explains… “2×2 supports were fixed into the beam with 2 x 150mm coach screws each, these 2×2 supports were then fixed to the studding with 3 to 4 75mm screws each. So in all aprox 36 fixings holding the beam in place, it did weigh a ton so figured belt and braces approach was best!”
Feeling inspired? Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your project. We will then send you a quote and pictures of a suitable beam.
It’s definitely cladding time! This week over 250 m2 of our traditional waney edge larch cladding is being delivered to various places including 200 m2 for the Tal y Cafn Hotel in Wales! Feeling inspired? With the cooler weather on it’s way (meaning the boards retain their moisture content for longer) now is a great time to clad your outdoor buildings. Speak to us today on 07846 794670 for a free no obligation quote.
We recently sent a sample of our single waney edge larch cladding to Lancashire Oak who then went on to build the stunning garage below. We love to see our cladding used in such a great way! If you would like to see a sample of our timber or chat through any project please pick up the phone and call Rebecca on 07846 794670.
Following our recent move to Oakdean Farm, we have been busy building a larch fence with our double waney edge larch cladding, using the boards horizontally and overlapping them by a couple of inches on either side. The result is a traditional rustic fence which will look great as it ages naturally over time.
It’s always a pleasure to supply timber to the very talented Andy Burgess Wood Sculpture.
We have been working with Andy for a few years now and recently supplied him with the timber for this very cool bench in Nando’s Crewe! We not only sourced the timber but also helped him with the end delivery.

We recently supplied 30 m2 of our double waney edge larch cladding to a joiner in Knutsford.

For the last few months we have been busy milling one of our biggest selling products, our waney edge cladding and sending it around the UK (via our trusty courier John) to be used in a number of ways. Recent examples include:
Supplying a local farm shop with cladding for their ‘fishmongers’ pictured above.
Sending 60 m2 of our single waney edge larch cladding to North Yorkshire where a talented furniture maker used it to clad the eves of his house whilst also making a new home for the local swifts!
Other example include a great French guy called Eric who used 46 m2 of our popular double waney edge larch cladding to make an amazing summer house for his customer in Macclesfield.
We recently also milled some traditional oak cladding for a stunning wedding venue in Cheshire who clad the roof of their wedding barn offering a funky contemporary alternative to plaster!
And lets not forget John and Pam Lyons in Bury who popped down to see us in Elworth, Sandbach to choose their cladding to refresh the the front of their house!
This is just to name a few! At WTTS Cheshire Ltd we are so fortunate that we sell timber to some really nice people! From the initial enquiry to the final delivery it’s a real team effort between the customer and us. And the feedback we get from our customers is that they value the great customer service and also the high quality of the timber.
We recently worked with Trafford Council (greater Manchester) to help inspire and install a multifunctional seating and play feature. We met with their landscape architect and discussed options including the various types of materials and designs available, and then worked in partnership to deliver an attractive and functional solution.
The park now has a new feature that the local community can enjoy and feel proud of. A creative alternative to the more traditional metal seating as seen in some local parks.
We love working in collaboration with our clients and the local community, ensuring from the initial brief to end installation everyone’s ideas and needs are taken into account.
The Rangers at Tatton asked WTTS to help thin an area of woodland that had become overcrowded with fast growing species such as Larch, Sycamore and Rhododendron.
Working in partnership with the rangers, WTTS’s team of experienced tree-surgeons ensured the work was carried out in a timely and sensitive mannor with minimum disruption to wildlife and visitors to the park.
WTTS removed the timber from the park and used established contacts to find the best end use of the timber, helping to off-set the final costs of the removal. Further contributing to the continued growth and development of this historic woodland.
WTTS are ideally placed within the aboricultural industry to source and mill quality pieces of timber. In 2014 WTTS invested in a sawmill which now regularly mills bespoke beams, boards and cladding for a wide range of customers, as well as providing material for many WTTS projects.
Recent examples include a restaurant in Birmingham required a unique and rustic alternative to the standard wooden laminated counter and table tops . The client briefed WTTS who responded with a document including ideas, images and a budget for sign-off. Once agreed WTTS selected a piece of Cheshire yew (felled by WTTS) then milled, cut and tapered the counter tops and tables to the clients exact specifications before shipping them to Birmingham. The client was delighted and his establishment now has the real ‘wow’ factor when customers walk in.
Other examples include our rustic waney edge larch cladding being used across the UK for a wide variety of out-door buildings including a ‘man den’ in Glasgow (image below), children’s play houses in Portsmouth and tree house in Cheshire to name a few!
Whether you are considering a small bespoke project or a large outdoor construction project, please give us a call to discuss your requirements. Our trained project managers can guide you through the whole process whilst ensuring you get the best quality timber for the job.
