    Comments about Marblewood 2" x 2" x 12" :

    the product was everything i expected it to be. it was delivered quite well packaged in a box of roughly 6 times the interior volume necessary. i arrived the package in a timely manner. and had an excellent time using it for some spindle tuning on my lathe.
