Coloured Beech Spindle Blanks

Fagus sylvaticus. Air dried
All dimensions shown are in inches (length x square).

There is not a standard grading protocol for spalted beech as there is with sound timbers, but people tell us that we set the benchmark by what we select and cut for turning blanks.

After air drying, we cut the most interesting parts of the planks into bowl and spindle blanks.

There are always pale, softer areas which will require careful and sharp cutting (what timber doesn’t?) but we aim for the soundest and most spectacular areas and selecting like this, we reckon the get a return yield of between a third and half, compared to normal blank cutting from sound planks.

From the residue that does not make our grading we have now started to sell ‘coloured’ beech. Years ago this would have been sold as painting beech. This coloured beech varies from light to dark, may have yellow areas or streaks and maybe a spalt line or two but the timber is sound and will turn well.

We sell this at standard beech prices less 20%.
