Welcome to long length timber
Eddie Smith has been active in sourcing hardwoods since 1965. He has worked in S.E.Asia (1970’s) and West Africa (1980’s) and also dealt in hardwoods from Europe, U.S.A. and Canada for many years.
L.L.T. has been set up to satisfy the demand from shipwrights working in the repair and renovation of large traditional craft such as Thames Sailing Barges, Essex Fishing Smacks, Dutch Barges and wooden Tall Ships, and also for other specialised Marine purposes (piling, decking, fendering etc...), who usually need much longer lengths and wider widths than most timber stockists can deal with.
Whether you require 10 metre lengths of wide planks in 3” Iroko , larch planking, oak for ribs and crooks or large Pine spars for masts and topmasts - we can help.
Eddie is an M.C.A. certified Thames Barge Skipper - he understands the problems both as regards the timber and it’s application to the vessel.
