A great deal for furniture legs
Review by  Chris from PA
This was described as "knotty" walnut, although there wasn't much character in the 8 pieces I received. I'm not complaining, I ordered them because they were $5 each. I had actually hoped they would have a lot of knots and fissures because they were used as legs in a highly figured tabletop that had voids filled with black epoxy. I had planned the legs to match, but I ended up not filling the few knots the pieces had (some pieces only had small 1/4" knots). Nevertheless, they were jointed well enough that I only had to cut them to length before drilling mortises. They may not be "premium" pieces, but I wouldn't hesitate to use them in any walnut furniture I make. As far as I'm concerned, the more character, the better. If they have the same deal again, I'll buy more.

coffee table legs
Review by  Rick from Colorado
Wanted some "character" wood for legs on a walnut live edge coffee table. I'd ordered 6 squares, in case one or two had TOO much character, but any of the six would have worked. Most of the squares needed some of the character defects filled in with some epoxy --but had planned on/wanted to do that anyway.
