Beech

Beech

Common Beech - Fagus Sylvatica

Beech may be cheap and plentiful, but that doesn't make it any less special. The huge trees have unmistakeable smooth bark that bulges and ripples like the muscles on a racehorse, within it lies beautifully dense, uniform, close grained timber that is stable, durable and a pleasure to work with.

Ideal for gauges, mallets, workbench components, moxon vices, tool handles etc. and because of its natural antibacterial properties beech is also ideal for making cutting boards, rolling pins, lemon squeezers, honey dippers, spoons and spatulas, children's toys... you name it!

Another advantage of beech is that unlike oak or ash it doesn't suffer any loss of workability for being kiln dried.

Origin: France
