Rarefind endeavours to offer craft woods suitable for turning that we discover in our daily activities
Blanks are cut relatively square and machined to show wood grain and interesting features and figure.
Dry turning blanks are cut from larger dimensional timber and purpose milled slabs. Both of which are seasoned prior to cutting out the turning blanks. The blanks are stored in a cool dry place.
We are also experimenting with wet storage to reduce drying defects.

We don’t assume to know everything about wood, but we give it our best, so feel free to email if you wish to find out more about the suitability of a wood for a particular purpose.
All woods have strengths and weaknesses, some are good for steam bending, some not, some durable outside some not, not all woods are the same that’s what makes them special, immense diversity in colour, figure and many other wood characteristics. If you want more technical advice or discussion email Mike directly and put Wood Advice in the subject line.
