Parana Pine For Sale
21st February 2018

Which leads me to a first. As much as I like to hoard interesting bits of wood (and I still will), I thought I'd try to offer some interesting pieces for sales. I have a few bits of Parana Pine listed on ebay as a start and I have some more of it to list, along with a few other nice bits of other species should there be any interest. Parana Pine is an interesting timber, it's not a true "Pine" and found favour for stair making and projects requiring very clear long sections.

I was in two minds on what road I should take. Preparing the timber by machine or hand? I opted for hand as I wanted a bit of a workout!

This is nothing more than a blatant copy of the Dovetail Marker shown in "Modern Practical Joinery" by George Ellis pages 65 to 67.
