I was a little apprehensive about ordering this, but what the heck. Very nice assortment of woods, ALL are larger pieces than I had hoped for just a few of them to be, and most very usable as is. A couple pieces have been stained and one looks like it was set down on screws so it has some gouges, but both are thick enough to plane to 3/4 or resaw to more pieces. Very happy with the content, well worth the money!
I just received the two boxes...

I just received the two boxes I ordered. Shipping was very fast as always with Rockler. I opened each box and went through them quickly and overall I am very happy with the contents. I got a good mix of Oak, Cherry, Maple, Walnut, and Birch between the two boxes. One pretty nice piece of burl Walnut that is 1 1/2 by 12 or so and one very nice piece of quarter-sawn white oak that is 4/4 x 6 x 8 roughly. I got a few very nice small bowl blanks that are approx 6/4 x 8 x 8 and a variety of other sizes just as described in the description.. I know this batch will keep me busy through Christmas and hope to make some nice gifts for family and friends. I would buy this again in a heart beat. I had previously ordered two of the exotic cutoff boxes and they were great also. Keep up the great work Rockler. Opening these boxes is like getting a gift.

Purchased one of the hardwood boxes. Just finished sawing to yield just over 2.5 sq ft of 1/8" which I will use for laminating, 11 large knife scales for kitchen or hunting, 6 small shallow bowl/plates 5"-6" diameter, 8 turning squares 1 1/2 to 2" square X 6"-9" long, enough 1/2" to 1" pieces to yield 7 - 2 1/2 -3 1/2 X 4" laminated turning squares for small pepper mills etc, 7 - 3/4" pen blanks and enough 1/4" stock mostly walnut to make 23 steak/paring knife handles. I'm happy!!!!
