OK all you budding cabinet makers, we cut them down,
chop them and make
things out of them. 

I've been put on the spot by our tourism people
concerning what wood to use
for a couple of external notice boards, they have
been quoted for American
White Oak but are quibbling at the price, seems
reasonable to me, and want
an alternative. I've suggested English Oak but been
shot down as even more
expensive. They are now talking Merranti, my
understanding of which is that
there are no sustainably managed sources in the
world, contrary to all the
notices you may see in Carpenters and the like.

So my question to you is what should we be using,
does anyone have any
ideas, websites that can give me unbiased info on
sustainability of chosen
timber etc.

I will still push for UK oak butt...............
