Winding Sticks - Satinwood & Ebony

£120.00 - Sold out


These East Indian satinwood & ebony winding sticks will form the first pair in my new Limited range. A super high density exotic wood with a smooth even texture, lustrous finish and an exceptional micro figure, the interwoven grain produces an effect similar to rippled satin when finshed - hence the name.

Winding sticks are possibly 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, unlike 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.

- Length, approx 23 inches.
- Made from quarter sawn East Indian satinwood.
- Clear contrasting ebony inlays on both sticks.
- Tapered base for added stability.
- Danish oil finish to aid longevity.

Note: listing is for one pair (two sticks) dispatch times are 6-8 weeks.
