Rosemary and I enjoy making items out of wood. We try our best to use all natural wood for our creations. When we teill you it is made of solid oak, that mans it is all oak with the exception of adhisves or other connective additives. Of course, there are some drawbacks to using solid wood. Wood moves with the change in temperature and humidity.
Many of our turnings start at the tree and end at the finished product. We attempt to get our wood from fallen trees or ones that have to be removed for safety reasons. If you are a turner and you are looking for turning blanks, let us know. We wil proably be listing turning blanks soon. We have blanks that are up to 2 years dry and some that have recently been cut. Let us know what you are looking for and we will try to fill your needs and wants. We can also supply some flat stock cut for smaller projets (most air dried, some kiln dried).
Carnauba wax used in buffing many of these products is water resistant and food safe. It is a botanical product found in everything from candies to packaged foods. It is used to coat medicinal tablets, dental floss and often as a vegetarian alternative to gelatin. Water cannot break down a layer of carnauba wax. It does not flake off, but will become dull with time and a fresh layer can be reapplied.
