There’s something special about working with people who are building something for their own home. The love, care and attention that goes into what they are creating is amazing to see. And being part of that DIY world makes us feel very honoured here at Bedford Timber.

So, when DIY Guru Alex Doddman approached us asking for some help with his Pergola earlier this year, we of course were delighted to get involved.

You may know Alex from his Instagram page, where thousands of people watch his videos depicting his amazing DIY projects. And his Pergola project (with huge screen and hot tub to boot), was no different.

So, Alex popped down to our Bedford depot and we were able to provide him with all the wood he required for his project. And the final result did our wood proud.

Alex was very pleased with our product, saying on Instagram: “Great timber for the job. Best merchant around.” We can’t disagree with that.

Bedford Branch Manager Gavin Lines said: “The projects Alex builds are fantastic and a brilliant example of how working in your home can produce fantastic results. DIY at its best.

“So, when he came in to get some wood for his Pergola, we were happy to help. We look forward to seeing you again for your next project, Alex.”
