This is salvaged material from previous logging that occurred from 1940-1960. It has been kiln dried in our vacuum kiln and surfaced on two sides but may contain a slight amount of residual moisture. An occasional check may be present. This species is prone to small hairline surface checks that do not affect the integrity of the wood. This great species finishes nicely and yields beautiful iridescence. You will enjoy the very aromatic, clean, crisp fragrance! This item qualifies for free shipping in a box size 56 x 38 x 8 via UPS Ground Oversize.
