    Comments about Yellowheart 2" x 8" x 8" :

    I purchased this to glue up and do a turning for a holiday present. I noticed many small cracks and tried to use the better section of the block. As I turned the block, I noticed more small cracks that seemed to grow as I turned, probably as the cutting relieved the stresses in the wood. My project was ruined and it was too late for the Holidays to get another piece. My guess is this was the end of a board that had dried unevenly. I expected better quality for a "Premium" piece of wood.

    I turned a bowl with this piece of Yellowheart and, while it was a little hard to turn, the results were worth it.
