International Timber offers the finest Scandinavian grown Pine from carefully managed and certified forests. Our products are sourced through our partners who process only the best quality logs, ensuring the highest quality timber.

Polarwood is ideal for door frame manufacture and also offers a solution for a wide range of other joinery applications. Polarwood is a solid redwood board which is selected to remove loose knots, shake and wane to provide a 3 sided board which is ideal for the door frame industry. These selected pieces are then finger jointed to further improve the performance of the board. Finger Jointing is recognised as the most stable method of joining
timbers together. By using Finger Jointing, it is possible to produce pieces of sawn timber that offer improved stability, fewer knots and an incredibly straight board.
