Our High Quality Wood Turning Blanks
You never know what you’re going to get out of a piece of wood until you start working with it. That’s why we believe the foundation of an incredible wood turning project relies on quality, unique wood turning blanks (also referred to as turning blocks). To accomplish this, our detailed, expert woodsmen have hand selected and cut each blank we offer in our shop. Take your pick from our high demand inventory of specialty wood: Black Walnut, Spalted Maple, and highly marbled Black Walnut. (Of course, we have alternative types available; these are just the most popular.) We specialize in highly figured Blank Walnut & Spalted Marble turning blanks so you never have to second guess the blanks you select.
