  • Beech in the Netherlands

    I am very new to scrollsawing, but I like it! I want to make more toys, but the soft wood I am using splinters and dents a lot. Here in the Netherlands beech is used a lot for toys, so I started looking for sources.

    I found somebody online who sells all shapes and sizes, and wants to make a package of 30 kg's for 80 euros. I have no idea if this is a right price, or that I am better of at a specialized company who sells standard sizes.

    Can anybody in this region shine a light on this for me? I am willing to spend 80 euros, but not if it's high priced. For starters, a picture of how much 30 kg's of beech looks like would help.

    Thanks you very much.

    He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

    Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

    It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
