WOOD SALE - SATURDAY 23rd JULY 10.00am - 4.00 pm IN SOUTHAMPTON
I've been working through my wood stocks and have more than 200 pieces for sale. It's all bone dry, planed flat both sides and cheap, it all has to go! Open at 10.00am (after I've walked the dogs) on Saturday 23rd July and first come first served, cash only please. We are easy to find on the northern edge of Southampton, post code SO16 7HP, I've booked nice weather!
I will also have a selection of infill planes requiring some TLC, nice and cheap. There are lots of (heavy) bags of off cuts for firewood at £10 per bag.
10% of all proceeds to go to the Winchester Night Shelter http://www.wcns.org.uk/ a very worth while local charity.
I'm not great at the social media thing (my 56th birthday in 2 weeks) so if you could spread the word I would be very grateful.
There are lots of varieties from oak, ash (including olive), sycamore, spalted beech, pear, apple, mahogany, walnut, cocobolo, pink ivory, pau rosa, tropical olive, bubinga, yew, bocote etc.
Many of the boards are nicely figured.
Above some fine Australian burrs
An 'elephants foot' of highly figured Masur birch and below some nice tight birds eye maple.
There is plenty of thick ash boards, much of it rippled and some olive ash as well.
There are 4 or five boxes of smaller pieces from £1, ideal for box making.
