Some wood slabs have a slight 1/16” to 1/8” bow or cup but most are perfectly flat. Vacuum kiln dried and surfaced on both sides, this wood is ideal for dining tables, coffee tables, bar tops and just about any other diy woodworking project that you can think of. This slab has nice fiddleback along the edges. There are numerous splits, bark incursions, knots, and checks.There are 3 holes that were caused by dugging nails out.
