Overall nice slice! This Madrone has beautiful pinkish-red or a lighter tannish-pink color. Slabs 1-2 thick have been air dried and are ready to use. Turning Blanks have been pressure cooked to relieve tension and prevent degrading; however, they do contain residual moisture. Wood is stable but needs some time to dry completely. Many blanks have checks, please see photos. Some turn away, some will not. A very small incursion or bug holes may be present. Boards/Slabs longer than 16 may have up to 1/8 bow (most have 1/16 or less). This is great quality, beautiful Oregon wood! There are bug holes/trails as well as drying checks on tjhe rear face.
