Small slabs or blanks
« on: February 07, 2016, 03:47:39 PM »
Hey guys I am looking for species I can't find around here. Cherry, maple, basswood, beech etc any species for making spoons and ladle. 12" long 4-5" wide and thick for the big ones and even 1 x 3 x 10" for the small ones


If it was easy everybody would be doing it

I have Apple, American Elm (Dutched), some Rock Elm, White Oak, Red Oak, and a little bit of Butternut... Getting a lot more this spring.

The Apple has been sitting since last June, cut. So it's pretty dry. The rest is still fresh slabbed, or log form still.

In the process of getting a mill, but I can cut you blanks if green is ok. If not, I'll have a kiln setup in spring, and have dry blanks readily available from summer on... Let me know.

Some American Elm (green): be determined.
