Morning all,
I went to Craft Supplies yesterday for some ebony and some ripple sycamore. I got some good macassar ebony, but the sycamore they had was either not rippled or the wrong sizes. Does anyone know anywhere that has good stocks at the moment? I need two each of the following:

8" dia x 2" thick bowl blank
7" dia x 2" thick bowl blank
4.5" long x 4" square spindle blank

These are for a couple of clocks, one for us and one for a wedding pressie, so I want really nice stuff.

I do have the telephone number for their sawmill, so I'll give them a ring on Monday, but I wondered if anyone has any recommendations.
Cheers
Steve

Thanks B
Actually I have driven down the A1 to Stamford today and bought some very nice - if not cheap - stuff from Lincolnshire Woodcraft Supplies. Excellent range and all good quality, by the look of it. Good figure etc. The couple there were very helpful too. I've seen timbers I've never seen before. I'll be going again, it's no further from here than going to Buxton.

Cheers
Steve
