    You could consider having a chat with Barry at Cedar Strip Co. I found him very helpful and he has supplied me with 1.2m lengths of cedar at a very good price. They came well packed and well finished at 9mm x 3mm.

    I think I will just refer to the wood in my Venetian blind slats as "pear' in future as it is apparently not known by any other name .

    Looking at the timber supplied by Cornwall Model Boats, they list both lime and pear, pear being a little more expensive. Some suppliers refer to lime as bass, but pear is a completely different wood.

    Cheers, Nerys

    Thanks for that Doug - I knew it was also known by another name - but I guessed at the wrong one ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿคฃ

    No Zooma,
    Commonly called Lime in UK and Ireland and Linden in most of continental Europe.
    Like the famous Berlin avenue; Unter den Linden (Under the limes).
    Nothing to do with the fruit trees๐Ÿ˜‰

    I believe that "bass" wood is another name for "pear" wood ?

    Luckily SLEC is a couple of miles from where my son lives. Therefore I'll place an order with them as it appears their prices are sensible, thank again Muskrat for the advice.
