Frequently asked questions

Type of wood used

  • All framing is completed in European Ash, however, we also use Birch ply where necessary

Source of wood

  • Various reliable timber merchants are used to obtain seasoned, predominantly air-dried but occaisonally kiln dried ash.

Where do you start

  • This depends a lot on the project that comes in, for example some require a complete rebuild whereas others need justa few parts.
  • For a complete restoration, Alwyn starts with the roof section (if applicable) before moving onto the rest of the ash framework.
  • For a partial restoration, where old parts are available for a pattern, new parts are made from these to fit the existing ash frame bodywork
