Caron Ruse's Profile
I sell crafts made from English wood.
My favorite wood is by far burr elm. This wood is becoming increasingly difficult to come by in Scotland and England due to disease so one day these items could be collectible.
None of the items I sell are made from wood which is deliberately cut down for the purpose of woodturning. For example wood that has been pruned or from storm damage, or driftwood found on a beach. My father made some beautiful pieces from some wood that was removed from the HMS Victory ship during her restoration, including some lamp bases.
The wood is finished with Danish Oil which is a natural, non toxic oil.
Wood should not be immersed in water. To clean it should be wiped with a damp cloth…
