Our solid wood craft blanks are handmade start to finish using A grade kiln dried wood. Each solid blank is sanded to a fine grain on one side and left rustic on the other.
All our wood is dry kilned and rested. Wood is a natural product and every piece will be different depending on its grain. Blocks will no doubt contain knots which add to the beauty of each piece. Our blocks are designed for the rustic look. One side is sanded to a finer grain whilst the other is left more rustic to give you a choice which to use. Wood has natural movement so light cracking may be on the rustic side but never on both. This movement happens before the wood is kilned and again adds to its character which our users love.
