Ironwood Surinam 1-1/2" x 1-1/2" x 12"
I've had the same problem as the other reviewer. Immediately after turning I sealed it well. Next day, - big cracks all the way across my work. I noted that the wood had about 20 percent humidity, which is pretty high. However I've worked with other woods with this level of humidity and never had this sudden and this large cracks. I will try to dry the remaining part of the stock and see if it make a difference and will update the review. Other than that I love the texture, density and the say it finishes. My garbage bin is one spoiled high class garbage bin, being fed such expensive worked wood...

Beautiful wood with flaws
I have made two turnings out of this wood. The first piece was done within a month of purchase and within a few days the piece developed some pretty severe checks. The second piece I let the wood air dry for six months before turning and that piece also developed some minor checking.
The piece I had was some beautiful wood with some very neat sapwood inclusion, however the checking is a big disappointment. I have worked with a number of different wood species and this is the only one that I have run into this severe of an issue with.
