Pretty lousy pictures of what is supposedly a "Exhibition Grade" blank.... From the pictures I would have to disagree with the grading.... better pictures may tell a different story...

To expensive and to small, this is how much I needed for a full stock cut.

I agree but not so sure the best pictures in the world will make it an exhibition grade piece of wood. The other side is... real exhibition grade wood would sell for 5 times what he is asking or more.

Agreed.... also, advertising it as burl wood really isn't an attribute that most stock makers are looking for. Burl wood tends to be pretty weak and has very little grain direction or strength in any one direction...

Not a put down of the OP at all, but a reality check on the seller...

He doesn't state "exhibition grade" or even the type of wood.

I just thought it was interesting/entertaining... they bought it at a Estate Sale and thought they could make good money on it.. then they state that they won't ship.. hilarious.. I think he's gunna own it for a long time.
