Seeking machined round hardwood poles 3" diameter

Postby Nunhead Tim » Sat Jun 02, 2012 2:33 pm

Hi all,

I know, the bodger's site is a strange place to look for machined wood! I'm looking to buy three 3" diameter hardwood poles about 7 ft or 8 ft long for use as ballet barres. ( Well, the pink tutu doesn't go with the pole-lathe - collects too many wood shavings. ) They need to be perfectly straight. Softwood poles would be too weak.

I've found suppliers of 3" x 3" oak posts, but they have a minimum order of 10 pieces and I don't fancy hand-planing them round.

Any suggestions?

Many thanks
