Not heard of anyone in Cornwall, but Yandles are in Somerset - depending on where in Cornwall you are, they might be driveable? If so, you could go via Axminster too, because I think they have blanks in their shop. If all else fails, there are some online sellers who deliver to your door - Stiles and Bates are great.

Unfortunately I do not have a name, but, at Okehampton Show this year there was a guy from Cornwall selling blanks. He had sourced them from storm damage to Lanhydrock Estate. He was a turner - some very nice items too - so maybe try googling turners Cornwall.

Good luck.

Dave,

Stephen Simmonds Woodwork are based near South Molton in Devon which would not be too far from you unless you live in the really far west of Cornwall. Stephen has a large number of pieces for sale on eBay, but I assume you could save postage by collecting in person. His eBay name is scswoodwork.

I have recently moved from Cornwall and can tell you that there are very few places to buy blanks. If you joined the Cornwall Association of Wood turners however they make up blanks and sell them in their shop. They are based near Truro, address etc on the website.

Hi hope the people that wrote on this thread are still around.

I work with someone who cuts and sells blanks and planks in Cornwall. We are based just outside of Camborne just off the Camborne west junction of the A30.

The majority of our timber is sourced from Cornwall. He has Ash, Lacewood, Yew, Holly, Beech, Birch, Lime, Walnut, and I am sure others too. Always new stuff coming in.

Please contact me for more details or call him direct, Kim Moore on 07703554389

Many thanks, Rob

Ah, didn't know Kim was doing blanks. Actually, didn't know if he was still around or not, not having been in the market for timber for a while. That's good to know. Thanks, Rob, and welcome aboard. :D

Hi, Just noticed there were new posts. I didn't spot the second page :roll:

Alf, thanks for the welcome. Yes Kim is most certainly still around so always worth keeping in mind is your looking for something in particular.

Dave, thank you for the welcome also. I hope you get sorted with something interesting to turn :)

Hi all,

My father has recently died and my mum and I are now starting to think about what to do with his stuff. One thing he had quite a bit of were blanks and various bit of wood for turning. I'm no expert, but know there is spalled beach, a couple of burrs and other stuff.

We are either going to try and sell it or it will, unfortunately, become firewood!

The bits are in Near Truro.

If you think you might be interested leave a message or pm me.

Thanks

Ian
