  Spalted Hornbeam and Spalted Beech to start with!

Spalted Hornbeam is probably the most spectacular of the spalted timbers we produce.
Rarely available in large quantities or sizes, this batch is from around 3 tonnes we laid up in 2016 and milled last winter. Available in circular discs and spindle squares.
Once it has sold, it will be some time before we can offer more.
Spalted Beech.

The most well-known of the spalted timbers, last winter we started milling the 60 tonne parcel we bought in a few years back and have since bought more in an effort to keep up with demand. Available in circular discs and spindle squares.

Limited amounts in the bigger sizes at the moment but we are working our way through it and have a large display in the shop

There was only one large blank from the whole batch and it had a few cracks. 

Guess who nicked it!

16" x 3", this dish is now on display in the shop.

  New NOVA 1624 II 
Nova have updated and brought back the 1624.
Formerly the 3000 and then the 1624-48, if the Galaxi is the automatic Range Rover of the lathe world, this 1.5hp machine must surely be the Land Rover Defender!
Solid cast and old fashioned reliable.
To kick off the new promotion, we can offer the Nova 1624 II lathe with a FREE Nova G3 chuck for only £1100.00 plus carriage if appropriate.

We still have the Nova Galaxi at £2400.00 plus delivery and you can see Dave playing with his new one on our YouTube channel.
And finally, we have a brand new ex-display Herald with legstand which we will sell for just £890 plus carriage  if appropriate.
It is brand new and unused of course but we need the space! (SOLD)
It is not listed in our online shop so please call us on 01304 366 360 or email us if it interests you.
That’s all for now folks, knee deep shavings to all!

  It’s big lathe month!

We have new stocks of the Nova Galaxi and until the end of the May 2017 are offering free carriage to Mainland UK!
The offer will be withdrawn if UK stocks from our supplier run out during the month.
As always, we have a display model in the shop to be seen running if you can call in.
We are running a Record Power offer on the Maxi1 lathe until the end of May 2017 at just £1799 plus £35 carriage to Mainland UK addresses.
As with the Galaxi, we have one in the shop to run up.
We currently have a DML250 mounted between centres on this lathe for a giggle (and space) but it does demonstrate what a solid lump it is!
  Timber Updates
We have at last sawn out the yew branchwood we put on pallets, under cover in 2005!

We didn’t forget them.
OK, we did, but they were at the back of the yard and it was one of those ‘just jobs’.
Also new in the shop are our ‘coloured beech’ spindle blanks.

These are sawn from planks we milled from logs that were laid up to spalt but didn’t go far enough and were never likely to.

Such are the vagaries of getting logs to spalt (whatever the experts say) but there are some very attractive spindles among them, some with the odd spalt line and variable colours.
