I ordered two of the 2x6x6 bowl blanks, and now I wish I'd ordered more. The wood is nicely figured and iridescent, it's already dried, and it turns beautifully.

Great price for a nice looking piece of wood. I'd purchased several of these from a "bricks and mortar" Rockler store when on vacation and was very impressed. I recently purchased some more online and am impressed that the quality is every bit as good! It's nice that these are properly dried blanks, rather than covered in wax, and that they've already been cut round for turning.
