This beautiful Ziricote has been kiln dried, surfaced on two sides, and is 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! This piece is rustic in nature and contains worm holes.There are several full length checks in the live edge.
