the wood is lime.
the height of the head is 140mm.I used the guide based on this site ,its very useful info.
As for the goose ,its for a present for another grandaughterits supposed to be mother goose.I will make a victorian bonnet for it, she just loves ducks etc. Its a xmas pressy,much better than anything i can buy
I get the wood from a place just of the A1 near grantham the name slipped my mind at the moment,having a senior moment. again lol.but if you want it i will look it up,there very good for wood and very resonable price and able to get most woods.You do have to purchase in about 8` planks,they do not plane it to size its just rough cut.
I think it was about15` wide and around £32 there delivery charges are steep tho, i just collect it myself
Its best to order it before you go and make a point of telling the sales guy what its for he picked out a really goood planks for me very few knots in it.As i said the planks are rough cut and still have the bark on them,they are air dried.
