Industrial Shelves and Timber Suplies Needed - Where can I get These From?

Postby 15kathi » Tue Aug 05, 2014 9:02 am

Hi everyone!

I recently moved to London and for years I have loved industrial shelves and finally wanted to build them now.
But unfortunately it seems to be impossible to get the supplies in London.

First of all the iron pipes: I have been to b&q, wickes, cityplumbing and finally found pipefittingsdirect which seem to sell Tee fittings and elbows but still not the pipes, and not in different lengths...

Second even the wood is giving me problems. Also for my patio project I would need timber boards in different sizes but where to get them and who cuts them? I would need 4-5cm thick wood, 35cm wide cut into different lengths. But where to I get that???

I am really frustrated because I already spend several days trying to find the supplies without any progress
I would be more than happy if there was somebody who could tell me where I would get the supplies I need.

Hope to hear from you soon.
