great wood, great value
Review by  Fabricate, Ed from
I bought 8x ash turning squares for legs to build custom speaker stands for my ash wood stereo speakers. 1 can of gloss black paint later, and now they match the speakers perfectly! The wood arrived in good time and in good condition. Just some light finish sanding and ready to assemble / paint! So I just bought 8 more to finish the surround sound (back) speaker stands! Very satisfied!

Review by  Don B from Polson, MT USA
So far so good. Haven't yet started project. Wood came without splits or checks so happy with that. What I like best is the free shipping on some deals. Sure helps on a fixed income.
