  • Castor wood a.k.a. Florida Bamboo

    Does anybody know how I can obtain some Castor wood? ???
    I was at a carving show not to long ago and a gentleman there was carving walking sticks out of this wood. It seemed pretty easy and it looked real nice. Does anyone have any info on this type of wood or had experiance with this?

    I would be interested in getting some to try my hand at walking stick carving.

    According to my tree book it grows in southern florida and some species have poisonous sap. It's a shrubor small tree growing to 25 feet. That's all I know cause that's all that's in the book. Sorry.

      New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

      It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

      Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

      I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
      on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
