Frogwood & CNC Machining

Use very sharp cutting tools, carbide if possible. Medium spindle speed with low to medium feed rate for roughing. High spindle speed low feed rate for finishing. Consider this material like cutting cherry, not soft like pine or hard like ash.

The pieces shown above were CNC carved in Frogwood Lilac. The wood was cut on the diagonal to get the wide color bands.




Whatever your project, FrogBlanks has the ideal engineered wood for you. For weight-sensitive applications choose Frogwood®. For extra surface hardness, strength and rigidity, choose Frogwood RHD5™.

Frogwood is a high quality lower density material that is ideal for general turning and woodworking. It is our lowest price point material.

Frogwood RHD5 is heavier but has excellent resilience with smooth cutting and finishing characteristics.



Frogwood®



I like Frogwood because it is easy to carve yet stronger than some of the laminates I have worked with in the past. Another big plus is how the colors don't run or mix with each other when varnish is applied. The colors are great and I certainly will be buying more of it in the future!

Nice material: easy to polish, high gloss finish, slightly flexible - better than SpectraPly® and lighter than stabilized alternatives :)

Amazing

John - Florida, United States

I found working with FrogBlanks on the lathe very satisfying. No tear-out, as sometimes happens with laminated wood (e.g. when working with skateboard decks). Can't wait to turn more, and apply them to other projects.

Frogwood RHD5™



This is the Dymondwood® replacement I have been looking for. I loved the integrity of the layers, sanding and finishing like I used for Dymondwood® . I would say the final result is easily the equal of Dymondwood® and much superior to everything else out there.

Prompt shipping and really appreciated the fact partial sizes could be ordered rather than only the full panel options of some of FrogBlanks competitors. The RHD5 machined very well and the high layer strength left zero tear-out anywhere on my project. Peter and Cliff are obviously very passionate about their product and were helpful every step of the way. I will definitely be ordering again

Wow!!

This stuff turns nice!

Much more smooth than rutland, and definitely more "wood like" than dymalux...

It grips very well on all the playing surfaces (slate, glass, aluminum and titanium.) The sound is very good, and lively....does not have the dull plastic tone to it that others have.
