Not so good
Two orders consecutive that the wood was twisted and was filled with holes. Won't order ever again. What a waste of money. You would think they would cull prior to shipping.

Zebrawood Turning Square
Some long splintering on the ends of the squares. I hope this is not a sign of the wood being too dry.
