All suppliers have been having great difficulty obtaining Lignum Vitae skittle balls for many years. Lignum Vitae is a protected species of tropical hardwood and so only extremely limited amounts of timber are in free supply any more. When timber occasionally does surface (usually from an old source), it is often faulty and therefore not workable.
However, occasionally, a decent chunk of Lignum Vitae is obtained by one of our turners and some balls are made. Please ring for availability before ordering, if possible, to avoid disappointment.
Warning - The timber is not perfect and does show some surface cracks and tiny holes. However, it is good enough for skittling and these minor issues will not affect game play. The wood is the hardest known to man and the grain is very intertwined so we don't believe any large cracks or breakages will occur. Please refer to our timber quality statement page for more information on timber guarantees.
