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.

    Watch the size

    Usually have steady supply. Usually maybe 15% are undersized but they will get you the right size if you send them back. Not top of the line figure but OK for the price. So good for certain purposes but not for "gem" quality purposes like demanding customers or a unique display. Good company for general things.
