Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

Thin Stock. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

Carving and Turning Blocks. Blocks are sawn to +/- ¼" of size listed.

Plywood. Sizes are nominal. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.

    Hard to use and WILL CRACK!!!

    I have to agree with the last comment..."When the wax coating is removed the wood needs to be dried before use as bad cracks happen in the wood grain" I've been turning for years and this wood is a challenge!

    Nice looking wood but has severe cracks

    When the wax coating is removed the wood needs to be dried before use as bad cracks happen in the wood grain
