HempWood - Dimensional Lumber
HempWood is made via a patented process that utilizes bio-mimicry to transform hemp fibers and protein based bonding agents into a viable substitute for anything solid oak can be used for. All hemp growth and material production is conducted in the United States of America and the hemp is grown using sustainable methods, which helps eliminate deforestation.
As a HempWood dealer, we are thrilled to offer you the finest selection of materials for your projects. This listing is for HempWood in its natural form. For stabilized HempWood, please see our other listings. Please note that HempWood is a challenging material for woodturning unless it is stabilized.
The two pieces I purchased came chipped and fraying. The faces look ok but are rough to touch and I’m not sure how I’m going to work them without them coming apart. Any drops of water an are absorbed like a sponge and softens the surface even more. Seemed worth a try but I don’t see turning this into anything that would hold up. This is NOT a wood substitute. At $40 delivered, I think there are better options.
If you were looking for something that was ready to turn, that’s what our stabilized hempwood is for. The raw hempwood is a challenging material and we only offer it because customers requested we do so. We never recommend turning raw HempWood.
