  • Linden tree

    I think this is a linden wood (Tieulle) this is my first time with this type of wood, liked turning it but harder to get a nice finish. Click image for larger version

    Re: Linden tree

    I have never turned it but have used a lot for mouldings. It sands in one direction only!

      Re: Linden tree

      Another good bowl Jacques, but it looks like White Ash wood to me, not Linden, a couple pictures here from Linden also called Basswood here.

      The first picture has a Norway Maple on the lefthand side and the rough turned Linden on the right, the Linden is still waiting to be finish turned, should e dry by now I think

      Two more pictures of the same bowl and one that I only have this picture from, got sold plus several other bowls in the Espanola store, it was endgrain turned, something I seldom do but worked OK with the bark-on Linden one.

      I will add a couple pictures of White Ash bowls that show the grain and wood of Ash, to compare against the Linden wood.

        I love turning Linden. A neighbour had one taken down in their front yard several years ago, and I've only got a couple of pieces left.
