Timbers List - updated on 10/07/2016

PLEASE READ
It may look a little confusing at the beginning but, is not really, you only need to remember that, I have allocated a numerical number to each wood species, as I collect them, is a lot easier to mark blanks with and identification number than the wood name, particularly if the blanks are store laying flat, the only thing exposed is the end-grain at one end so, that small space is just sufficient to mark with a number than with a name.
The letters next to a number (normally in red) can indicate various things, the most common are the, Z for diagonal cut, X for cross cut, ST for straight cut, B for burl, SP for spalted, STB for stabilised, etc...!
In general terms, a blank marked with a number only, means that the wood was cut with the grain/straight cut.

The timber species I have, (all species in the large mixed packs/one blank of each species

are, straight cut)

 Pen blank size approx. 21mm square x 130mm long.
