Exotic Turning Square Starter Pack

Exotic Turning Square Starter Pack

For turners who are just getting started and want to try three of our more popular Exotic species, or for anyone looking for some savings - this pack is for you. We will provide you with 3 x high quality turning squares/spindles in Mahogany (1), Paduak (1), and Purpleheart (1) in the dimensions of your choice. Our 2" blanks have already been kiln dried and are ready to be "turned" into your next great project!

We can sometimes accomodate a larger blank than our standard sizes. Please email us for availability and a quote.

Dimensions may vary +/- 1/4" as we often prefer to lightly skip dress the turning blanks to reveal grain & colour. Some blanks may also come with waxed faces and ends.

Courtesy of The Wood Database:

Mahogany : Easy to work, glue, and finish. Tearout can sometimes be a problem if the grain is interlocked.

Padauk : Overall Padauk is easy to work; tearout may also occur during planing on quartersawn or interlocked grain. Padauk turns, glues, and finishes well.

Purpleheart : Working with Purpleheart can present some unique challenges: if the wood is heated with dull tools, or if cutter speeds are too high, Purpleheart will exude a gummy resin that can clog tools and complicate the machining process. Depending on the grain orientation, can be difficult to plane without tearout. Purpleheart also has a moderate dulling effect on cutters.
