pole lathe poles

Postby bourbon » Tue Mar 07, 2017 7:26 pm

Hi All. I am a Pewter caster in a medieval living history group based in the Midlands. We have a carpender, Blacksmith, cook and a fletcher. We have just had a family join us and the Dad is building a pole lathe, In my capacity as 'the guy who can source anything' I have been tasked with finding 12ft bendy poles. I don't want to saw down random trees at the side of the road. Can any of you fine people point me in the direction of said Items. Thank you
