Recently we received some welcome inspiration in our favourite form - some amazing planks of wood!
From A&M Wood Specialty in Ontario, we acquired three majestic planks of Doussie, a couple of Swiss Pear, a most special of all, an extraordinary plank of English Brown Oak.
This 8/4 plank had been set aside for Robert for some time, a wonderful surprise as we were expecting 4/4!
Many of us felt drawn to this wood, with its unique curl-ish grain, somehow reminding one of wool... it has cloud-like depth and texture, and shines with warm, true brown. A very special wood, hard to describe.
We also received some amazing Granadillo, Ipe, and Agathis from Westwind Hardwood on Vancouver Island, where the class visited on a wood run. Despite not being able to make the trip this time, I celebrated with our new acquisitions, and Robert and I began to plot how to expand our wood storage...
Thanks A&M and Westward Hardwood!
