All of our wood is Kiln Dried and ready to be worked on by you! *Exceptions to this will be noted in the Features section.
All of our wood has also been surfaced on at least one side, with most slabs being surfaced on both sides. Please check the pictures and Features tab for exact clarification on this. For picture taking purposes, and to give you a good idea of what the slab will look like with a finish, we spray mineral spirits on slabs that are over 3/4" thick. Slabs that are 3/4" thick and under are sometimes wiped down with one swipe of mineral spirits to help show the figure. Our lumber is described as accurately as possible but due to the nature of highly figured and/or burled wood, minor cracking and checking might not be evident. When boards are listed, they are flat unless indicated in the item description above. Because of the natural edge look to most of our slabs, our dimensions are listed as "at the widest spot" or "at the longest spot" of the slab. Some of our slabs still have the bark attached, we cannot guarantee that all bark will remain on the slab during the shipping process. Our slabs are handled with great care, but even as they get moved around on the shelf, the bark can come off. Item numbers are written on all slabs in black sharpie marker, which can be easily removed with some light sanding or lacquer thinner.
