You are purchasing a piece of English Acacia - this size in particular is perfect for turning a small bowl.

 

Acacia often has a yellowy-green hue to the timber, and can be slightly open grained. Some people like to use Acacia to experiment with fuming - tuning it dark brown to black. It can react with the sweat on the palms of your hands, turning black so have something nearby when sanding to wipe your hands on!

 

And for a bit of a history lesson, Acacia is mentioned in Exodus 25:10 as the construction material of the Ark of the Covenant!

 

It can be quite tough to work with when dry - especially when spindle turning, so not always suitable for absolute beginners.

 

The timber has been dried and planed down to 5 inches square and 2 inches deep - there may be a slight amount of tolerance, but this would be minimal.

 

The timber your will receive will be very similar but not exactly the same piece as shown in the photograph (every single piece of timber is unique and would take far too much time to photograph individually for resale).

 

You are purchasing:

1 × 5" x 5" x 2" Acacia Cross-Grain Blank

 

PLEASE NOTE: 

I quality check every piece of timber prior to posting, and therefore there are a few considerations I would like to bring to your attention:

  • Timber is a NATURAL product which can have cracks and inclusions hidden within the grain and within the wood itself which I cannot be held responsible for
  • Wood can warp and crack if stored incorrectly - again I cannot be held responsible if your timber moves and/or cracks prior to you turning it OR AFTER you have turned and finished it
  • If your timber is cracked ON ARRIVAL, please contact me within 24 HOURS with photographs to see if something can be sorted out

 

Happy turning!!
