ROUGHED OUT NESTED SETS IN VARIOUS SPECIES
*THIS PRODUCT DOESN'T QUALIFY FOR FREE SHIPPING.
The same high-quality roughed-out blanks you have come to expect from me... but as nested sets. Sizes and species are listed below and for sale in the drop-down menu.
Nested sets ship free to the continuous 48 states. When ordering, please purchase only nested sets with your order. If you would like individual blanks please make a separate purchase or you will be charged for shipping on the nested sets. I hope to fix that issue asap.
Do you struggle to find high-quality logs to turn your bowls from? Can't or don't enjoy the rough work of making bowl blanks? Don't have the time or room to dry roughed-out bowls after turning? I'm here to help! I source all of my stock from local forests. Tight growth rings, no metal, the highest quality wood blanks available
All our roughed-out bowl blanks are turned from greenwood to a thickness of over 10% of diameter (a 10" blank will be approximately 1" thick or greater). All blanks are dried to around 8% moisture and are ready for you to give them a second turn. Most of the larger blanks have tenons on the bottom that need to be trued up. Most of the smaller blanks do not have tenons, but there is plenty of depth to put one on. If you ever need any help or have any questions please feel free to message me at Scott@Alexanderdesigns.us I'm always happy to help :)

Your Alexander Designs piece arrives finished with a food safe oil and wax combination. Proper cleansing and seasoning will maintain its natural anti-bacterial properties. To prevent splitting or cracking, never soak your piece in water, put it in the dishwasher, refrigerator, or microwave.
After use, hand wash with soap and water, rinse, and hand dry. After it has been allowed to completely dry, after repeated use it may seem a little dull or dried out from washing. If so, it could use a bit of seasoning. The following are great options: Our favorite is our made in-house Wood Wax. Simply rub a small amount of Wood Wax onto the piece with a small lint free cloth (In our home we leave a small piece of cotton cloth in the Wood Wax tin, as to never waste any product), let the wood wax absorb into the piece for 20-30 minutes, then buff off the excess with a lint free cloth. Our second choice would be a heat-treated walnut oil such as Mahoney’s Walnut Oil (it can be found at several retailers online. Lastly, (our least favorite option) you can use Mineral Oil as it’s food safe, however it does evaporate and will require more frequent applications. Always avoid using any vegetable-based oils as they will turn rancid over time.
Following these care instructions will allow your piece to be enjoyed for generations. If you ever have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email, or call, we are here to help you.
Normally people sell blanks that they don’t want to finish. These are always the quality size and shape worth buying as they offer options as to final shape
