Inky black to very dark brown and with a significantly higher density and hardness than ordinary oak, bog oak was created when prehistoric forests were submerged under water and silt in anaerobic conditions thousands of years ago.

This stock has been carbon dated and is 5300 years old.

Bog oak requires careful kiln drying and lots of time and skill to make useful as timber. This is the most cared for bog oak available anywhere.

COVID 19 UPDATE

We are closed to personal callers. Please shop with us over the phone, by email or through our online shop. The online shop at shop.exotichardwoods.co.uk is fully functional for mail order with thousands of items available from stock for immediate dispatch.

We recognise that the process of self-selection is by far the best way to buy and sell wood. Unfortunately it will be some time before we can accept customers into the warehouse again, even without lockdowns, because we have staff and family members that are actively shielding due to pre-existing health conditions.
