I have a very nice piece of chinaberry that is 12” wide x 12” long x 4.5” thick. Chinaberry is in the mahogany family. This blank was cut back in March on my sawmill, and has been sealed with anchorseal. I am not a bowl turner, but I know that it will make a beautiful bowl. If someone who turns bowls would like it, I can ship it to you via USPS flat rate box. The wood is $25 and the USPS flat rate shipping is $17 for a total of $42. Here is a pic of the bowl blank and also a pic of the flat sawn grain of chinaberry on a Slab. If you are interested, send me a PM.

Thanks,

Danny

Scrub,

The 12” x 12” x 4.5” is not, but I have some smaller ones. What is the minimum thickness that you can use?

Thank you for the response Danny and I apologize for not doing same. I am turning a bowl on commission for a co-worker and I do need something in the 12×4 range. Thanks anyways…

I want the slab! I can’t afford it, but it sure is nice. We always thought of the Chinaberry tree as a trash tree growing up in Texas, I never knew it was so nice.

ScrubPlane,

I have blanks that size in pecan (very nice) and in spalted poplar.

Richard,

The chinaberry wood is very beautiful. I have some 20” slabs that are 1 1/2” thick and 10’ long with the live edge on them. Unique wood that is actually in the mahogany family.
