Review by  Jarhed from Moab, Utah
I made a silverware organizer for a kitchen drawer. It turned out really nice and the cherry wood was perfect for this little job.

Not what I ordered but thats ok
Review by  Lee from Prescott Az
The wood is always very good but this time I received 3/4 x 3.5 x 36. I will make it work just a quick trip to the band saw. The one thing I didn't like is the two stickers firmly adhered to each piece, if there is any way to avoid this please don't do it.
