hi all,

need to get back into the woodturning, been a while and not really had any decent wood to practice with either.

so do you know of anywhere that is reccomended that sells blanks that can be delivered (North west uk)? ideally nothing special or exotic as need to get my hand back in, so prefer not to error on an expensive bit of wood.

thanks

I used home of wood when I was starting out, they do various mixed packs/sacks of bowl and spindle blanks. All good, sensible prices and a great way to buy 'not too precious' stock for making mistakes and making good things as well.

I will use them again when I need more.

thanks.

Looked around at several places and bought a pack from 'english woods', had 10% discount so was about £39 for a box of 10 mixed blanks.

just need to re-do my ellisworth grind to remove the convex and will take a look.

next issue will be what finish! or may just stick with danish oil for now.
