Juniper what to do with it?

Postby jjj » Wed Aug 21, 2013 6:39 pm

I brought some juniper wood back from a recent trip to Finland, probably about 1.5m in length and diameter from ~5.5 to ~ 7.5cm. I've made about 12 butter knives but wonder is there anything else which is traditionally made of juniper. Ideas anyone?

Found this: http://www.purejuniper.co.uk/index.php? ... t&Itemid=1
Not sure how traditional the products are but they include: jam spreaders, cheese forks, salt pots, sugar pots, cutting boards,...

Plenty of juniper related things on that website, thanks.
I might try coasters, hot plate stands or maybe a salt pot.

Around here people use juniper as ribs in the river boats, I don't know why it was chosen for this purpose though.

There is one wood that SHRINKS in length when wet - is it Juniper?
