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.

Easy to turn, less chip out on a wood lathe, nice color.
Ordered this to use for a segmented turning, alas the spindle was probably about 85% sapwood which totally defeated the purpose it was intended.
Got a few pieces of exotic woods to learn turning and shaping. This came clean, dressed, straight and true. Couldn't ask for better! All of the wood stock I've purchased from woodcraft has been of the same 'high-quality'. Allows me to experiment a little with various woods usually not readily available at 'Big Box Stores'. Thanks
