Very Happy
Overall very happy with the cutoffs I received. Not really sure what all the pieces are, but all pretty good sizes for much smaller woodworking projects or small glue up projects. All in all a good purchase.

Woodworking Experience:
Great variety of wood - I enjoyed going through the box and sorting through the mystery wood that I got. Granted, you don’t know what you’ll get, but I got some red heart, Padauk, wenge, katolax, and even some marble wood! Solid buy, would definitely buy it again!

Bought the box and let it guide my creativity.
Have a somewhat random abstract lamp project in mind. This box of various woods and shapes are going to be perfect. I was impressed with the caliber and variety of woods I received. Definitely going to count on Rockler for future inspiration and supplies.

Randy W on Jul 7, 2019
Are the individual pieces labeled by species? I'd like to pick up this box as a sampler to see what I like and possibly order larger boards of later, and would need to be able to identify them. Thanks in advance.
Dustin P on Nov 18, 2018

Unfortunately, no the pieces are not individually labeled, while that would be nice. But most are easily identifiable, but I would be honest to say it can be a bit difficult to differentiate a few pieces.
Can these wood types be used for spoon carving?
Martha H on Jan 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I couldn't tell you, as that's not what I make. but I don't see why not - they're good hardwood, tho some pieces may be too small to carve into spoons. hope this helps.
Do you deal in or are you interested in reclaimed lumber or barn wood? .
Roscoe J on Jul 18, 2019
In the customer gallery of pictures there is a picture of a single piece of wood. Can anyone tell me what type of wood it is?
