Walnut & Maple Winding Sticks N°001
£55.00 Sold Out
This particular pair quickly became my favourite, although they almost didn't make the cut, or at the very least, shortened, they have a small through hole near the end of one stick, a slight defect? Perhaps. However I couldn't scrap them or cut their length, they have a fantastic dark colouration and distinct grain contrast. With that said they had to be the first pair to be completed on this small production run, N°001.
Winding sticks are possibly the the simplest tools in your tool chest, however the job they do is invaluable. Place one stick either end of your board, sight down the centre and they will detect and exaggerate any wind (twist) in the board. If the top of both sticks are parallel to one another then your board is good, the contrasting hardwood inlays will help expose any wind.
Why wooden sticks over metal?
Wooden sticks are superior to their extruded counterparts, in the unfortunate event you were drop one, unalike a metal stick, these will not bend rendering them useless. Yes, they may get a dent or chip if you drop them, but this will only add character, or if inclined you could run a hand plane over them.
- 500mm in length, approx 19⅝ inches.
- Made from kiln dried American black walnut.
