Topic tags/keywords: question wood hawthorn crataegus monogyna

I was wondering if someone can help me to find blanks of hawthorn , or thornapple, or hawbarry (Crataeges Monogyna), also known as common hawthorn.
I do models and this is a very nice wood to work with, but recently I have no lack in find it. Because most of my work is miniature size even small piece can be useful for me. I really appreciate any help.

I don’t know about Hawthorn, but it is closely related to apple so I would think the wood is very similar in texture and working characteristics. You can find apple wood at any orchard.
