The ash turning squares were very good and consistent but did have some small dings along some of the edges. It's a little bit softer wood than I usually use. The grain and color were beautiful.

The plan is to create chess pieces from these. They are perfectly square, have adjusted to the desert climate I live in with no warp or twisting, and have a beautiful straight grain pattern.

4/5 of my squares were in fantastic condition and are perfect for the project then the last one was a good 1/4 or more shorter, a huge dent, and had the end grain paint and was splitting up so that piece was unusable for the projects I need it for.
Familiarity: I've used it in several projects
