DYMOND WOOD BARREL BLANKS AND U-PICK COLOR FROM LIST- We have so many colors of AUTHENTIC DYMOND WOOD and the newer Diamond Wood Style barrel blanks so we decided to offer all of these colors in this U-PICK COLOR listing.
We've just secured a new stash of DYMOND WOOD so we'll add new and more exciting colors often so you should check back to see what new colors are available. We want to clarify that there are two styles of these popular laminated wood barrels. Here's the difference.
REAL DYMOND WOOD: The real Dymond Wood is a very dense and waterproof wood barrel that is made using layers of birch that are bonded together using extreme pressure, heat, and it's also infused with phenolic. This is the same stuff used to make Micarta. The infusing of phenolic is what increases the weight of each barrel, and when combined with the extreme pressure and heat it creates a waterproof wood. It's very similar to working with a professionally stabilized wood barrel. It's a rather amazing wood product to work with and it sands beautifully and finishes superbly.
DIAMOND WOOD - COLOR WOOD - SPECTRA PLY - The other style of "Diamond Wood" is the same as the "real" Dymond Wood but it's made with less pressure during the laminating process and it's not infused with phenolic. So these barrels look very similar but they are lighter and they're not waterproof. The do look very similar and they sand well and they're easy to finish with a clear coat. It's an overall great option if you like the laminated style wood barrels and they're not as expensive. The "real" Dymond Wood factory made this style and it was less expensive and actually a better product than Spectra Ply option which is still being made. To keep these various options separate we call them "REAL" or "AUTHENTIC" DYMOND WOOD spelled with a "Y". The other styles we call "DIAMOND WOOD STYLE" to make sure we make mention what is the "real" Dymond Wood and what is the Tier Two version of Diamond Wood. Yep, confusing.
These barrel blanks are pre-drilled with a 5/8" bore and "ready to shape." So take a look and see if there's a color that you like and we'll continue to add to the list because we just got a whole new stash of DYMOND WOOD so new colors will be added soon.
