What a deal!
Though I live about 30 mins from a non-chain specialty lumber store, I never have time to get over there. I bought a moxon vise kit and have been reluctant to use typical 4/4 wood (very well stocked in my shop) glued up just to add thickness. Settled on this 8/4 beech as it seems hard, stable and good for a moxon vise.
I was very impressed with the selection shipped to me. Straight, flat, and the "rough" edges are quite good- will allow for minimum waste. And the clarity is impeccable... Maybe 2 tiny knots total over the 3 pieces.
Only comment is one piece has a (approx 45°) naturally chamfered edge across most of the piece. It removes about 3/4" of the lateral width. Absolutely no problem for me! I'll just use that piece for my chamfered front for the moxon vise, but just thought folks should be aware.
Familiarity: I haven't used it
