Our bowl blanks are cut directly from the kiln-dried boards we receive from our supplier. The thickness of these boards can vary slightly due to natural variations in the wood and the drying process.
The thickness advertised is a nominal size and the actual thickness can vary by up to +/- 3mm. In most cases the actual thickness will be within 1mm of the advertised size.
Zebrano Bowl Blanks
The heartwood is light golden yellow with richly veined dark brown streaks. The striped effect is reminiscent of a zebra, which is how the name Zebrano derived. Used in fine furniture and turnery.
Kiln Dried ready for the lathe. All our bowl blanks are supplied sawn with the edge sealed with hot wax to reduce the chance of the wood absorbing moisture if stored in damp conditions.
