Easy to work wood
Purchased this wood to use in beginning (small) furniture projects with my 12 year old. The wood works easily with hand tools, has minimum amount of tear out when hand planing, and sands nicely (although it seems to be a bit soft for carding, but that might be my problem). Finished in a rubbed oil and wax, the grain pops with a nice, cherry-like glow. Will be working more in this wood, which I tried on a lark because of the monthly special.
