Customer Reviews

"I really love this steamed pear wood for turning bowls and small plates. It is super easy to work with and very easy to shape and get into a nice curved bowl. I have found you can really push how thin you can get the walls of your bowl with this and have done a few that are seriously slim. The grain varies very much from piece to piece but it always gives a really nice unique look with lots of different light brown shades through it. You sometimes hit some really dark or light patches around some of the grain and if you chase these then you can get a really beautiful effect from it I have found that a high gloss finish brings the best out of the wood and have started using a coat or two of cheap friction polish as a sealer and to start getting a shiny layer then using Hampshire Sheen high gloss over it to give a fantastic hard high gloss glassy finish. Some of my best bowls have been made from this with that finish and they look fantastic if I do say so myself. It is not cheap but it is a fairly unique wood to work with and the finished pieces be it for sale or for gifting etc are well worth it. Give it a try!"

Workability

Overall easy to work with both hand and machine tools. Turns, glues, and finishes well.

Timber Sizing Guidelines

Please note the sizes displayed are approx. Due to timber coming from all over the world starting thicknesses vary up to 1/4 Inch depending on the origin. We use the umbrella guides of 1inch,1.5, 2, 3 & 4inch, but please be aware that all planks are planed one face to highlight the grain and to allow us to see faults which can result in under thickness. This can result in planks being under the thickness depending on the starting thickness. For example, Oak 2 inch is normally 2.1/8th before we plane which allows 2 inch thickness after we plane and 2x2 spindles or blanks. Native Ash is often 17/8th to 2 inch after drying and before we plane. This can plane to 1.75 inch and result in 1.75 inch x2 inch spindles. Whilst we always try and maintain the thickest board possible, sometimes it can be under-size. If you require a finished size of 2x2 we recommend purchasing a larger blank such as 3x3 & machining this back yourself. If you require sawn spindles or blanks please state in the comments section of the order and we can cut to order in our sawmill. Please note this service can take up to 10 working days.
