Hi - I need advice about getting good quality thin boards for a craft project. I don't want to use ply and (preferably) don't want to use t &g. I'd like to use something like the stuff used on good wine boxes. I looked up one wine crate supplier and they said they use '12mm furniture grade dressed pine' - where would I get that near Birmingham. Any ideas please. Martin

12mm thick is a non standard thickness. Usually PAR softwood is sold in 18mm thickness, and thicker boards are generally available. If there is a timber merchants or joinery company that sells timber to the public then you may get what you want.
Try looking in the yellow pages for either timber merchant, timber yard or joinery manufacturers.
