wood is great, a few pieces were shorter and yet a few thinner. i was hoping the indicated half inch was actual. i also expected more exotic samples, since around eleven were simply plain.
nonetheless, would consider ordering again definitely.

Excellent. Used in my workshop to make custom guitar parts. Musicians can be a picky group, but haven't had nothing but rave reviews thusfar. Thanks.

If you do any selling, you must have this kit. Now, when someone orders a chess set, I can sit down with them and let them pick out the woods they want for the pieces and board.
These are high-quality samples, packaged great, and a wonderful price.
