Sweet Chestnut Spindle Blanks
Castanea sativa. Air dried.
All dimensions shown are in inches (length x square).
A pale brown coloured timber, similar to Oak but without the medullary rays on quartersawn planks.
Strong grain and streaks of darker brown and green give this timber an attractive look. Good burrs are sometimes to be had from old trees although these are prone to ring shake, but not in our blanks!
Turns and sands easily to a good finish, takes all finishes well but like Oak, can be finished with a well buffed coat of Briwax for a satine shine. Being open grained, it is also suited to lime waxing.
