Heveatech: The strong, eco choice

10 June 2014

Heveatech, a new and innovative hardwood engineered decking board, is now exclusively available in the UK through Round Wood.

The material is an exciting addition to the market as it is has strong environmental credentials, boasts outstanding durability and, unlike its artificial counterparts, offers a stunning, natural appearance.

It is produced from the ‘Hevea Brasiliensis,’ better known as the ‘Rubber Tree’. This species has a typical rubber or latex producing lifespan of 25-30 years, after which they have historically been felled and used for firewood, or even discarded.

This timber is now cut into small layers, which are bonded together under extreme compression and finished with a solid veneer.  The result is Heveatech; an engineered decking board with a uniform moisture content and 50% less potential expansion and contraction than other hardwoods.

Its stability makes it ideal for use with hidden fastening systems, such as the ArchiDeck Clips we exclusively supply.

As Heveatech decking is so durable and is particularly suited to the harsh European climate, it is offered with a 15 year warranty against contamination and decay. It also has a lifetime warranty against termite infestation.

220 x 15mm Handscraped Flooring now available

10 June 2014

Our handscraped engineered flooring has proved so popular that we have extended the range.

In addition to our 21mm thick boards, we now offer a 15mm option in a 220mm width, It is particularly suited to jobs where there is no requirement for a structural board. As it still features a 4mm wear layer of solid oak, it can be sanded back 2-3 times, so offers years of use.

Enginnered Handscraped Flooring

The handscraped effect gives these boards a rippled effect and the impression of years of use. They are often specified for use in older buildings or when an aged appearance is desired.

Eco Nuggets Now Available

13 December 2013

We are now recycling our hardwood offcuts into 'eco nuggets'; high-quality briquettes that offer expectionally high burn temperatures.

Briquettes - Eco Nuggets

As a manufacturer of flooring, decking and skirting we generate a signifcant amount of offcuts in our mill and joinery workshop. As we specialise in hardwoods, in particular oak, many of these are of a very high quailty - perhaps too good to be used as simple firewood. As such, we have recently taken the decision to combine them with the sawdust we also create and produce our own 'eco-nuggets'.

The timber and sawdust is mechanically compressed, producing an extremely dense, dry and clean nugget, or briquette. These qualities mean they offer extremely high burn temperatures and are also very easy to ignite. They are so effective that they can even be used alongside those wet logs that you wouldn't otherwise be able to burn. 

The pellets are also easy to handle, can be broken down easily and come in absolutely no packaging other than an outer bag, increasing their eco-credentials even further. They are ideal for wood burners, traditional fires and chimineas. As they are so dry, they will need to be kept away from mositure, so please keep them under cover. They will typically be made up of around 95% oak.

Initially, our eco nuggets are being offered by the bulk bag. We will shortly be introducing different options, however, all of which can be delivered nationwide.

Planter Ranges Expanded

13 August 2013

To ensure that we keep pace with ever growing interest, we have added a number of new designs and materials to our range of garden planters.

Garden Planters can help transform the look of every home, garden and landscape, no matter how basic. Now there are even more styles to choose from, giving you even more opportunity to achieve your required look.

These are the new materials/ranges we have added:

Pictured: New planter materials, from left to right: Terracino, Stone Fibre, Ironstone & Faux Lead Cast Iron



These pots are hand crafted in Terracotta before being fired in high-powered gas kilns to achieve a consistent colouration and outstanding durability. These are a favorite for the achieving a more traditional out door appearance. There are many different designs available in this material.

Stone Fibre

Stone Fibre is a composite of resin, stone powder and fibres. The simple, sleek designs of the range combine dramatically with the plain black colouring. Perfect when a more robust, yet still attractive planter is needed.

Iron Stone

If you require a classically styled planter that is practically indestructible, consider our exclusive Ironstone range. These pots are crafted from extremely dense, salt glazed stoneware fired to temperatures in excess of 1000 degrees centigrade.

Faux Lead Cast Iron

We have expanded our Faux Lead Chelsea range even further. It now includes models manufactured in cast iron, which is significantly heavier than the usual materials used for this look. As with all Cast Iron products they will develop their own patina over time and weather down, but can be restored at any time by priming and spraying or painting as required.

Each of the planter materials above comes in various designs and sizes to suit various needs. We have smaller planters suitable for herbs and giant designs used to plant trees.

New Oak Barrel Stock

26 June 2013

We have recently replenished our stock of high end french oak wine barrels, which are perfect for use as water butts, ornaments and pub/restaurant furniture.

The current batch is particulalry clean and features varied finishing touches, such as vineyard markings, willow straps, red daubing and supporting braces.

Oak Wine Barrels Oak Wine Barrels

In order to maintain quality, a typical French wine barrel can only be used for about five seasons. Some vineyards even restrict them to just one vintage, which is the case for the ones we use. Decommissioned models are suitable for a number of new purposes given the standards they are coopered to.

We have established a consistent, high end supply of these, facilitated by our long standing contacts in the timber business in the region. They are sourced from a variety of top vineyards, including Chateau Beychevelle in the Medoc region.

Many carry distinctive markings and feature a number of differing finishing touches. Our customers put them to good use in a number of ways.

Rain water harvesting

Oak barrels make great water butts, particularly when compared alongside the green plastic models widely available. They are also kind to the environment and can offer storage capacities of 225 litres, allowing you to save on utility bills and avoid hose pipe bans.

Round Wood can carry out all the work required to convert a barrel. This involves drilling a hole for the down pipe and outlet and supplying a wooden tap. If required, diverter kits can then be fitted by the end user if they are concerned about over flow.


Not only do oak wine barrels look great in the garden as stand-alone features or tables, they also work brilliantly as planters.  Half barrels are best suited to this purpose and can also be used to harvest rain water.

Furniture and storage

Pubs and restaurants regularly use untouched barrels as tables, or décor.  They are also often seen in delicatessens for display stands. Weathering often adds to their appeal, although they can be finished with Danish Oil if a consistent finish is needed.  We even offer barrels with  table tops that slot straight onto full and half barrels, depending on the size of feature you need.
