You are purchasing a piece of English Sycamore - this size in particular is perfect for using to turn a good sized platter or shallow bowl.
Sycamore is a very pale timber, and the pieces I sell are extremely clean. This timber is excellent for beginners as it has a lovely, close grain and cut beautifully. The plain colour of the wood lends itself to be the perfect canvas for playing with coloured stains and dyes.
The timber has been kiln dried and planed down to 6 inches in diameter and 3 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 × 6" x 6" x 3" Sycamore 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
Standard postage is £3.75 second class via Royal Mail.
