Jewelry box trim
Using this Quilted Maple as trim and to offset the main wood, Ipe, on a jewelry box for my 5 yr. old niece. I have never used Maple before so it is a learning curve on how to get the figure to stand out the best without changing the natural color much. Lots of lets try this and this and oh hey, what if I do this? Overall, as with past purchases I am happy with the board selected and I will be ordering more kinds soon.

I spoke to them on the phone before placing my order, and requested highly figured wood. Now, I know everyone wants that, and I understand my request was a tad unreasonable. But THEY DELIVERED. Every piece was stunning. I used to spend hours digging through piles of lumber at a local exotic wood warehouse, but never again. Not only was the quality of material higher than what I used to hand pick, but the price was completely comparable - and even better in some cases. Honestly, I look forward to having Woodworkers Source supply all of my figured maple for tap handles and guitars for as long as they're around.

The wood arrived and was well wrapped and protected. I have never worked with this wood before and I understand that it might be tricky to machine and or sand. The three boards are two different tones so I will have to wait until after finishing to fully comment on the selection of the wood. I understand that your supply was very limited and that you did your best in selecting the various pieces. The wood is listed as 4/4 when in fact it is 3/4 thick which is no problem since I will use the 3/4th finished size. I will send photos upon conclusion of the project (small dresser) if I am not to embarrased by the results. Thank the handsome crew that selected and shipped the wood.

Not Great
I ordered a bit of this for a table project. One piece was fantastic---wonderfully figured. The rest -- not so much. I also ordered some black walnut and zebrawood all of which looks very good.
