This Madrone lumber has beautiful pinkish-red or a lighter tannish-pink color. All boards and slabs are kiln dried and surfaced on two sides. Nice fiddleback and amazing colors make this is an exceptional choice for your woodworking projects! The term "rustic" refers to numerous defects, such as checks, cracks, incursions, knots, or other defects that are ideal for natural projects, but may present issues in other woodworking projects. There may be defects that are not specifically described or are more serious than what is visible by just looking at the wood. These pieces should not be used for any type of instrument and it can be helpful to use epoxy or another similar substance to stabilize the wood. Rustic items are non-returnable. This slab has a 1/2" twist the length of the slab that could be flattened with some time. It has a few voids caused by knots and splits in the crotch figure. If this piece is cut in half, we can ship it for free!
