I saw this wood product on TV a while back. The host called it “Wildwood” but I haven’t been able to find it. Thought I’d ask the group here for some help and also opinions if they have used it before.

Thanks

I did some searching and could not find any information on wildwood in that form. I could not find any easy
way to contact Scott or Susie Phillips, but it you or someone could get in touch with him, he might be able
to help you.

De

If you are refering to the wood in the picture, it is multiples of wood glued together then cut and glued again then cut again and glued again. Long process but looks great.

PS – I could not click on the link to watch.

Here’s links to a couple of similar ideas, different brands:

and Strata-Blanks. I think one of the pen turning sites used to sell this brand, but they quit?

Here is the episode 2004: segmented turnings, do not mention a vendor’s name or wood used to make that blank.

Nothing really special about that wood or blank. Have not found a vendor selling anything like that one. Suggest make your own out of favorite contrasting woods and have fun with it.

Thanks guys for the suggestions…

The photo I posted was not a link but just a picture so that you could see the product.

Don’t think I have the skill set to make a glue up that precise.

I looked but couldn’t find a way to contact Scott or his show but do agree that would be the ideal way to find out about this product.

Thanks JustJoe, I liked the second one.

Still looking…

Really do not like “American Woodshop,” show for same reason these people expressed.

I do not know for sure but assume that fellow teaching segment turning in that episode made the “wildwood blank.”

Bill Sands said they edited those shows heavily and that Susie did not make anything while he was there, but
he gave an email address for Scott. Sent an email and got a prompt response saying that Wildwood went out
of business shortly after the show aired and the product is no longer available. Guess we will have to make
our own.

You did a great job tracking an answer for me. Thank you so much. Evidently the show I was watching was a bit dated. You are right, We’ll have to make our own.

Thanks again.
