Thread: Wood Suppliers

I might be a bit late joining this thread but have you been to LBC hardwoods in Chester? They specialise in Oak. Ive always found them to be competitive on price and very helpful.

Thread: Turning salted silver birch

There are some really nasty timbers out there but its sometimes the ones you take for granted which cause the most problems! Whenever I use a spalted timber or work with yew or Laburnum I always cover up. Dust mask, eye protection and gloves as much as poss. I don't suffer with dermatitis but I have had tingly hands after working with yew without gloves. I hope this helps. Have you looked into an airshield dust mask?

Thread: Cherry waney edge table
02/04/2017 22:18:08

Hmmm it's a tricky one but I would be tempted to make the top up in three sections. Two sections with a waney edge and the mid section as a large mitred frame. I would put a veneered MDF board low down in the in the frame leaving plenty of room for pebbles and epoxy. If your joints are nice and tight you should have a minimal amount of epoxy on the floor! I would be tempted to use buttons to hold the outer sections down and screw the mid section solid. This way you are forcing the movement away from the centre of the table. Hope this helps!
