ADI Bowl Blanks 2.5 x 7 x 7"
Perfectly Solid quarter sawn Figured Desert Ironwood Bowl Blank. Stock Size: 2.5 x 7 x 7"
To find perfectly solid wood like this you have to start from a very old Ironwood tree that has grown in perfect climate condition for 500-1000 years. This type of wood is getting extremely rare and availability of this size and quality will not last forever.
The blank photo listed is a sample only. The color and figure you can expect varies with each piece. You can expect color and figure ranges based on ALL the wood blanks listed in our Stock & Discount Blanks. If you are seeking a dark, golden or mixed color blank please make your request at the "message" option during checkout. If you want to pick and choose a blank in this size: check for active listings on our Unique Figured Blanks section.
All of these blanks will be sealed on the ends or sealed completely with Ankor Seal to preserve it. Moisture content ranges from 3-18 and may require finish drying. If resawing or turning we recommend milling your wood close to finish dimensions and letting it air dry for another 1-3 weeks in a dry warm area: depending on your climate and thickness of wood.
Ironwood is one of the easiest woods to resaw and shape. The key is to use sharp tools. For finishing, work your sandpapper grits down 80, 120, 240, 320, 500, for example, then finish with a jewelers rouge and hard buffing wheel.
