Robert Sorby Spiralling System allows you to create spirals on turned pieces. The Robert Sorby Spiralling System is a further development on the texturing tool and is used to create both left and right handed spirals with ease. It features an innovative rest with indexed reference positions, which enable the replication of the spirals. Differing pitch and twist profiles are made possible by altering the presentation angle of the cutter or by changing the cutter to a different one.

African Mahogany is strong, yet light, and works beautifully with hand tools. The color matures from a salmon tone when freshly cut, into a rich red or brown with age. The grain varies from straight to curly, sometimes producing highly attractive figures. Flat-sawn boards feature wavy horizontal bands. All boards are machined S4S to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations. Thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, moldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Texture: Fine or medium to coarse, and uniform.Luster: Highly lustrous.Movement: Mahogany is considered to be one of the most stable timbers.Durability: High durability, resistant to brown-rot and white rot fungi. Moderately resistant to dry-wood termite attack.Weathering Properties: Very good - a great choice for boat building.Planing: The wood is easy to plane, but figured grain may chip and tear.Turning: Easy - turned surfaces are usually clean.Polishing characteristics: Good.Steam Bending: Fairly good.Strength: Variable, but generally high bending strength and medium crushing strength. Hardness and weight are moderate, and density is high.
A long time favorite for its rich color and excellent workability, Cherry continues to gain popularity for use in fine furniture and cabinets. The wood leaves the sawmill with a pinkish, rosy tone, and continues to darken over years to a deep, lustrous red. The narrow sapwood has a creamy color, similar to Hard Maple. Cherry is easily worked with hand tools and takes an excellent finish and polish. All boards are machined S4S, and are planed to 1/8", 1/4", 1/2" and 3/4" thicknesses, relieving your planer of excess work. Thin boards are well-suited for edging, veneering, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock and bent laminations, while the thicker boards are ideal for furniture, paneling, cabinet doors, mouldings, drawer sides, fine jewelry boxes and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Distribution: As many as five varieties of Black cherry are reported to thrive throughout North America.Tree: Attains heights of about 100 feet (30 m) Average tree grows to about 80 feet (24 m) in height, and produces a tall trunk, about 24 inches (60 cm) in diameter. Cherry trees are usually large enough to harvest after 35 to 40 years. Full height is attained in about 100 years.Light & Air-Induced Changes: Black cherry is very sensitive to UV light, which causes it to darken over time. UV light inhibitors in coatings can be used to prevent color change.Grain: Fine grain. Material with dark wavy streaks are frequent. Quartersawn lumber has a shimmery appearance.Texture: Fine and uniform. The wood often has narrow brown pith flecks and small gum pockets.Luster: Rich and satiny. Odor: Emits a fruity aroma when cut.Steam Bending: Good. Often compared to Beech and Ash.
