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.

Good Product for Bird Carving
Pros:Carving for years-first time to try tupelo. It is lighter than the basswood I have and seems to take detail better. Works well with a sharp knife or power tool, sands nicely. I have been using every scrap on a carving and habitat currently in progress. Cons:I don't think it will work as well for thin inserts. The block I got had a large angled off bark area on one end that of course can't be used.(That may be how it is when buying this wood)
