Fr. Ed Jansen of Severna Park, Maryland, wrote in to say how much he likes Rockler's Hardwood Assortment — and we like what he's done with it! Father Ed gives the assortment five stars and says:
The assortment of woods I received enabled me to turn two small vases plus I had a lot of wood left over for other projects. It's nice to have this sort of product available; it gives one access to some exotic and common woods that might not be available for those of us working on a limited budget. Thanks Rockler! Keep up the good work.
We're so glad Father Ed shared these beautiful pieces! His use of multiple species in the same projects really gives them an exotic look and a unique appeal. These gorgeous vases are a great example of what can be done with our wood assortments. We offer a few other ''grab-bags'' of wood to experiment with as well:
