Note: Most woodturning blanks are not kiln dried. For best results do not remove any existing wax coating until you are ready to begin turning your project. Use your turning blanks quickly. Be cautious of leaving these blanks unused for an extended period of time. Due to the hydroscopic nature of wood and depending on the storage conditions – the quality of the blank may be impaired if not used in a reasonable time period.

These plain maple turning blanks are hand sorted for the best figured grain. Approximate dimensions listed.

Features:
  • Tree: May reach a height of 70 to 120 feet, with a 24 to 36 inch diameter trunk.
  • Working properties: Figured grain has a tendency to tear out. Tools must be kept very sharp. Reduced cutting angles can help.
