an ideal paddle material; strong, flexible, hard & relatively
lightweight, with stunning rich deep golden red tones & grain
patterns, American Cherry has it all.
another top-class paddle wood; light/medium weight with flexibility
and quite unusual grain patterns. This particular timber lightens
in colour over time, whereas most slowly darken.
This is a new addition to our menu. Although smaller trees grow in Northern Europe, Argentina, Chile & New Zealand, the best quality lumber comes from N. America. Gold through to red in colour with strong darker graining, it is surprisingly strong and stiff for its relative low weight and is one of the hardest “softwoods”.
This fabulous timber (also known as Sweet Cherry/European Cherry/Wild Cherry) is closely related to the American Cherry we have been using for some time. It is paler in colour, with pinkish brown tones & occasional hints of pearlescent green and has a tight wavy grain. It is of similar weight & hardness and has a lovely firm flex. It is locally sourced & highly sustainable.
Also known as European Ash, this timber differs from its American relative in that it is not as dense and is consequently lighter in weight and more flexible. The grain is coarser and has more character with stronger tones of brown. This wood is also very sustainable and locally sourced.
