Wood was bowed
Review by  Mickey D from Massena, New York
I have never worked with this type of wood before. My intention was to make a 14" X 14" X1 3/4" chessboard mixing the Granadillo stock with 1 3/4" red oak. The stock that I received was slightly bowed. I had to plane everything down to get the Granadillo stock to lie flat. Also I found that after I glued up the oak and Granadilllo together and then made my cross cuts; the Granadillo stock easily chipped. I still think it's a beautiful piece of wood but before I use this again I may have to rethink some things before cutting.
