Wood has it's own characteristics. As there is no tree the same shape or size, each piece of timber is totally unique, giving you a truly bespoke product every time.

Our timbers and materials

  • American White Oak Sample
    American White Oak

    This timber is ideal for internal joinery: internal doors, frames and furniture. Lighter than all other oaks, a very decorative grain with fewer knots. The sapwood of American white oak is light coloured and the heartwood is light to dark brown. White oak is mostly straight grained with a medium to coarse texture, with longer rays than red oak. White oak therefore has more figure.

  • European Oak Sample
    European Oak

    A very versatile timber used for both internal and external products. Slightly darker than American white oak with more unique characteristics.

  • American Ash Sample
    American Ash

    Ash is a very decorative timber, similar to American oak but whiter in colour. This timber is only used for internal products.

  • Idigbo Sample
    Idigbo (African)

    African Idigbo timber is a durable timber for external fittings. We highly recommend this wood for external doors and door frames because of it's high durability. The light colour allows you to have a greater colour range as it can easily be stained in any colour.

    Sapele (African)

    This timber is an ideal and cost effective choice of timber for external use. Medium to dark reddish brown or purplish brown. Color tends to darken with age. Besides the common ribbon pattern seen on quartersawn boards, Sapele is also known for a wide variety of other figured grain patterns, such as: pomelle, quilted, mottled, wavy, beeswing, and fiddleback.

    Similar to mahogany, this timber is red in colour and suitable for all external joinery.

    Iroko (African)

    Preserved in it's own natural oils, Iroko timber is ideal for garden furniture, decking and othe rexternal joinery products. Heartwood is usually a yellow to golden or medium brown, with color tending to darken over time.

  • European Redwood Sample

"I contacted LCJ to build me a custom fitted wardrobe. I had my own design, other furniture makers wouldn't help.
LCJ were more than happy to, they were professional, friendly and actually improved on my design with their own ideas, I highly recommend their expert service."
