Item details

We were asked by a local crochet group to make a blocking board . Dave set to work and insisted that he would not use softwood so in this case London Plane (Lacewood) was his preferred choice.
This rather special wood is also called Lacewood due to the very pretty lace type pattern found within the grain.

A prototype was made for use with bamboo skewers. This worked but the skewers proved to be flimsy and snagged the wool.
The finished board was then supplied with 3mm brass rods tapered at each end to fit snugly in the drilled holes.
This was trialled by our local craft group and proved very successful.

So this board is 12" (30 cm) long and about 10" (25 cm) wide , just over 1" (28 cm) thick. It weighs about 1.4 kg.
The pattern of holes will accept squares up to 22 cm in increments of 1 cm.
According to feedback from customers hexagons and even heart shapes can be blocked on this board.

So if you are working in imperial measurements please allow for conversion differences to metric.
The wood is finely sanded then has been finished with Osmo wax /oil finish which gives the wood a natural sheen and will give the board some water resistance .
(Please do not immerse in water though!)
8 brass pins 3mm in diameter 6" (15cm) long are supplied.
The board is fitted with felt pads on the base to prevent scratching to your furniture.
Each board is hand made in locally sourced wood and the grain pattern varies from board to board .
These boards have proved very popular and Dave usually only makes one at a time . Should you like to have one please don't wait too long!

Please bear in mind that this is a natural product and can be affected by heat differences. It is best to keep wood away from radiators , direct sunlight etc.
