The  Traditionalist Range

2 Rod Buzz Bars in Solid Oak

You can’t get much different than these, the idea to use Hardwood came by pure chance - not easy at all and It soon came apparent that working with Hard Wood makes working with all metals some what “Childs Play!”  As there’s no such thing as exact diameters, and the treatments and processes needed to allow it to be used in an outdoor application to stop expansion, contraction, water absorption etc.... 

But once built up the end result of all the prep work is nothing other than stunning, in fact it makes you very reluctant to even use it. But I have been using a few samples (Shown below) and they have been faultless.  The Points on the Bank Sticks are bigger diameter than the timber to avoid scratching, but even then – a quick wipe down with Linseed Oil or Beeswax and any marks instantly vanish, the more applications with use and the better they look.  The main appeal is every single thing made is 100% unique, as the patterns/grain in the timber are totally unique.

I will only make a limited range in numerous Hard woods , as in a couple of Bank Stick sizes, 2 and 3 Rod  single mount Buzz Bars , as time goes on more variants will be added.
