Canarywood Furniture Squares: 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" x 30"
Review by  Wyowoodsmith from Hulett Wy
I'm planing a table for a dear friend, she loves the pictures I have sent her, Canary Wood is a very special eye catching species, these squares will make beautiful legs- I asked for close matching grain and color- I set the two next to each other- they are from the same 8/4 board, cut from next to each other- How close is that!! Big Thanks Folks !!

Canarywood Furniture 1-3/4" x 1-3/4" x 30", Large
Review by  Wyowoodsmith from Hulett, Wyoming
The 6 pcs. of Canary wood 1-3/4 x 1-3/4 x 30" I received were all nice grain matched (I asked for someone to check that) 1 was 1/8" bowed, but nothing that will effect the tapered legs that these very beautiful pcs. will be used on- perfect is not a natural occurrence in wood of any species, every custom woodworker understands this and I have learned to incorporate the "oddities" that Nature allows us to have- it is what makes the "One of a Kind" pieces I love to ship to my cliental. I thank everyone at WWS for the wonderful pcs. I received
