The quality of the wood shipped to me was exceptional.Impressive.

I bought 6 blanks to turn...

Kenneth F from Kyle, TX Posted February 14, 2010
I bought 6 blanks to turn for my new chisels. Only one had a small defect on it but it was on the end. No problem. Very hard wood but with sharp tools no problems turning them. My handles came out LOOKING GREAT. Beautiful purple hue to them. I sanded them smooth with 3 grits of paper and just rubbed paste wax and polished to a nice shine. Great wood. If you need blanks these are the ones for you.
