ABOUT OUR BLANKS

POPLAR:  A SOFTER HARDWOOD SPECIES, POPLAR IS CONSIDERED A VERY FUN AND EASY WOOD FOR CARVING BECAUSE OF ITS UNIFORM STRAIGHT GRAIN.  IF YOU HAVE A SCANDINAVIAN, ECLECTIC, MID-CENTURY, OR FRESH COASTAL BEACH VIBE, THIS NEUTRAL-TONED BLONDE WOOD PAIRS WITH IT ALL.  KEEP IT WELL OILED TO PREVENT MOISTURE ABSORPTION AND STAINING.

CHERRY: A MODERATELY HARD HARDWOOD SPECIES, THE LUXURIOUSLY RICH REDDISH-BROWN COLOR, AND GENTLE GRAIN LINES MAKE CHERRY A BEAUTIFUL WOOD TO CARVE.  CHERRY STANDS UP VERY WELL TO DAILY USE AND WILL LAST A LIFETIME.  CHERRY DARKENS AS IT AGES AND CAN BECOME ALMOST AS DARK AS WALNUT. 

WALNUT: PRIZED BY WOODCARVERS FOR ITS STRENGTH, UNIQUE GRAIN PATTERNS, AND GORGEOUSLY RICH DARK BROWN COLOR, WALNUT IS A TRUE STUNNER!  CARVING WALNUT REQUIRES MORE TIME, PERSISTENCE, AND PATIENCE DUE TO THE DENSITY AND TIGHTNESS OF THE WOOD FIBERS. BUT, IF YOU ARE WILLING TO PUT IN THE TIME, YOU WILL REAP THE REWARDS.  THE TRICK TO CARVING WALNUT?  GO SLOW, AND KEEP YOUR TOOLS SHARP!

PROUDLY HANDMADE IN BEAUTIFUL BC, OUR BLANKS ARE SOURCED FROM SUSTAINABLY MANAGED FORESTS AND EACH BOARD IS HAND-SELECTED FOR THE FINEST QUALITY. 

THE BEAUTY OF WOOD IS THAT EACH PART OF THE TREE IS DIFFERENT. THIS MEANS THAT EACH BLANK WE CREATE IS UNIQUE IN MARKINGS, GRAIN PATTERN, AND COLOUR.  THE NATURE OF THE HANDMADE PROCESS MAY CAUSE THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF EACH BLANK TO VARY SLIGHTLY.  

PLEASE NOTE: OUR BLANKS DO NOT COME WITH CARVING INSTRUCTIONS. CARVING KNIVES SOLD SEPARATELY
