SECONDS Crochet Granny Square Blocking Board
THESE ARE SECONDS
Mr Pigeon is human and as our blocking boards are made by his hands, we invariably get the odd one or three, that dont meet our full price standard. These are all purely cosmetic and do not effect their use.
Please see the photos of each board and read their descriptions carfeully.
a - some drill holes have slightly splintered in places, leaving small gashes. These have been sanded so are smooth.
b - hole drilled in slightly wrong position. Refilled and drilled again, leaving a small blemish on top right. This board is also not fully square due to the original wood warping. However, the holes have been drilled squre so this does not effect the final shaping of your squares.
c - centre holed drilled slightly out, refilled and redrilled, leaving a small blemish. Some drill holes have slightly splintered in places, leaving small gashes. These have been sanded and are smooth.
Made as sustainably as possible using wood that came from a family owned clothing shop, and has been stored in our cousins loft for years, this solid mahogany blocking board is drilled, routed, beautifully sanded and oiled by hand.
They hold 20cm x 20cm granny squares.
Mr Pigeon has also cut and sharpened 8 dowels for each board, making them the perfect height of 15cm. Long enough to hold a good stack of squares without the dowels bending in too much under the pressure of the stretch of the yarn.
Most boards only come with 4 dowels... but I know I always need a couple extra!
I can personal attest to how tactile and lovely they feel... you are lucky I am listing these as I wanted to keep them all!
