    I will have look through them. Some of the wood is up to that size but not checked which species they are. You thinking of wood for skittles? If so what size would you want it milling and any particular cuts?

    Whats this wood?

    I would have gone along with the pop but the wood itself is not like any pop I have seen. I will plane up some this evening and give some weights for it now it's dried. Maple fits the wood so much better but not found any with bark like this.
