Check the angles!
I bought two of these together, and while both were beautiful pieces, one had been cut with a 1 or 2 degree angle on every face. Not a big deal if you're turning on a lathe, but I was making square feet for a bed, so I ended up having to make a lot of tool adjustments to get it to work for a couple of them. I'm considering using these for bed posts, but will be checking for square angles.

I want to use these to cut veneer strips from, would the rough cut allow for this to be done, or would I have to prepare the pieces (plane them down, etc.) before this could be accomplished?

BEST ANSWER: While 'rough cut' the piece I got was pretty smooth with only a few checks/nicks in it. It wasn't like rough milled lumber and was closer to a finished board with some flaws.
