Chilian Beech

Another not commonly known species grown in New Zealand. This was from a tree grown at Nelsons Garden Of The World complex and felled in 2014 due to crown dieback. I green turned and boiled a number of bowls these were dry enough to return three months later and showed no signs of cracking and very little distortion. This South American Beech is related to this countries Beech species with this variety called Nothofagus Alpina. Like all our Beech species just so lovely to turn with such a richness is color and grain patterns. Timber is used extensively in Chile & Argentina for furniture flooring wine barrels joinery etc. Sold Has a double vee incised cut with texturing between these two burnt lines.
