Have you ever thought about how you can save money, here’s one option by collecting your own timber and converting it yourself, either by felling that wind damaged tree or collecting it from the local tree surgeon. Then this is the ideal solution when storing and seasoning your timbers, simply melt down and apply a liberal coat of the paraffin wax to the end grain timbers, which will prevent the timbers from splitting during storage. You could also take the timbers along to the craft fairs and make a bit more money by selling them at your stall. Woodturners alike are always looking for that extra piece of timber. The paraffin wax can also be used for mixing with other waxes to make your own wax polish and can be used to lubricate draw runners etc
The Chestnut End Seal is a ready to use sealer which when dried forms a seal on non-kiln dried wood, thus slowing down the drying process and helping to prevent the wood from splitting. End Seal is an easy to use, safe alternative to using molten paraffin wax. End Seal can also be used when working on a large item which whilst is being worked on can safely be left for several days, or longer to prevent it from splitting whilst still on the lathe.

Many thanks for the speedy replacements for the missing parts of my pen kits. I wasn't really expecting a complete replacement of the entire kits, nor so soon! A truly excellent example of customer service. - Paul Williams
