To all the UK people on here. I'm looking to buy a piece of wood similar to american butternut. I have been told light walnut is similar. I only want this to do a trial using different oils to see the end finish as I have a special hand carved topper I want to make sure I don't mess up. As I say I will be throwing it afterwards so it does not matter it it has cracks or flaws or is even very thin or fat or very uneven.

think you may find it difficuly to get .T here are specalist wood suppliers on the net you could try them but to buy a small pices to throw away you may as wellbuy a piece for a tooper and work it yourself .whatever you decide it will cost

Perhaps you could check are the professional woodworkers' shops; maybe stairbuilders. Perhaps they have some cut offs.

I am not familiar with woods in the UK. Color wise Elm seems similar but it is a dincer wood and would take a finish differently.
