Winding Sticks

Winding  Sticks are used to detect twist (or “wind”) in a board. When flattening a piece of timber it is possible to plane it smooth but for the board to still be twisted.

Our Winding Sticks are made from quartersawn Walnut. One of the pair has a Maple inlay to make sighting easier and both sticks have a mother-of-pearl “centre dot”. They are hand planed to make a matched pair – please store them safely when not in use to maintain their accuracy.

Once you begin to check your work with Winding Sticks you’ll notice a definite increase in precision – components will fit together tighter and you’ll find that it is easier to glue up projects as you need much less clamping pressure.
