Nothing wrong, but nothing special
There was nothing wrong with it, rather just a little boring/plain. By the picture, it seemed as though there would at least be some figure to the blank. Almost all the Bubinga I've seen has some. I don't really recall, but I'm not sure how it was advertised...whether as figured or not, so I took it as a lesson to check next time. Also, I am assuming that the blank is NOT dried already. The ends are sealed, so this is most definately a turning block. Again, nothing wrong, just not special.
