Which is harder/tougher: Castello Boxwood or Swiss Pear?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


When using Swiss Pear, I noticed that it easily develops nicks/dings when I hit it against the table or other things during planking (Yup, I'm quite clumsy at handling fragile objects  :blush: ). Is Castello Boxwood any tougher/more resistant to damage? Thanks very much.

Yes, Castello is considerably harder. Pear needs to be handled carefully. One can get small dings out by applying water with a brush to them. Water will swell the wood locally and usually get the ding out. Sometimes, repeated application is needed Of course, it will mess up any finish on the wood, if present, and you'll have to refinish. Being careful is a better strategy.
