Home of the widest range of Rare and Exotic Timbers in Africa!
Over the years we have grown to the point where we now offer a range of over 150 species of timber from our long-established operations in Cape Town and The Garden Route (Knysna). With a stockholding of R150 million – as well as the associated infrastructure of warehouses, vehicles, machinery and of course our highly knowledgeable and experienced staff – we lay claim to being the largest timber merchant operating in Africa today.
The company is still based on the ethos instilled by owner and founder Rory Wood – that of Reliability, Continuity, Knowledgeable and Friendly Staff, and Value for Money.
Our well stocked showrooms and friendly staff make the selection of the timber for your project a pleasure. Please come have a cup of tea or coffee while you browse our stock which ranges from popular species like Oak, Ash and Beech, to highly exotic timbers like Ebony, Cocobolo or the Rosewoods (of which we have 7 varieties!). We look forward to showing you our comprehensive array of finished samples which highlight the beauty and diversity of this wonderful natural product.
At Rare Woods we love, live and breathe timber every day, and we are looking forward to sharing that passion with you.
