You are purchasing a piece of stunning Spalted Beech - this size in particular is perfect for making a small, shallow bowl or platter BUT due to the spalting I would not recommend it for food use.


The grain of the Spalted Beech is highly intriguing, with many subtle colours running through it. The density of Spalted Beech can vary within the piece, so sharp tools are required to cut it cleanly. 


The spalting is created by fungal spores which grow within the wood as it begins to rot. You MUST use a respirator or mask when turning Spalted Beech, as the spores can be re-activated my the moisture in your lungs if you breathe in the dust.


The timber has been thoroughly dried and planed on each face  - 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" Spalted Beech Cross-Grain/Bowl Blank



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!!
