This is a great way to sample exotics without spending a lot on large boards. Each piece is labeled with the species name. These are a mixture of short boards that have been cleaned up to remove checks and other defects, however a random check, live edge, or incursion may be present. These are great for tinkering with different species making boxes, pens, intarsia, jewelry, and other interesting projects. Dry and ready to use. A few pieces may have some residual moisture. Generally the material is kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. Species may include: Redheart, Oregon Myrtlewood, Padauk, California Claro Walnut, Big Leaf Maple, African Zebra, African Bubinga, Mexican Royal Ebony, Greenheart, Marblewood, Oregon Madrone, Bloodwood, Mahogany, Acacia, and Others!
