This beautiful Ziricote has been kiln dried, surfaced on two sides, and may be wax sealed on the ends. Occasional very faint hairline checks may be present in black streaks; these are usually on or near the sapwood. Minor end checks may be present. This wood is exceptionally high quality, A grade material. It is the same material that we use to cut instrument sets that are sold to larger instrument companies. It is getting much harder to obtain so stock up and take advantage of the wonderful pricing! There are some bug holes present on this piece.
