Zag is a cool piece of cherry wood. Will make a great base for one of my figurines. Haven't decided which one yet. Seller is very prompt with sending out items, marks what they are for me. (I forget) and packages them well. The pieces of wood in the shop are all interesting and pretty. Some unusual wood types, which I love, and a variety of sizes and shapes. I am a repeat buyer, and I can highly recommend the shop.

I love Cherry, and this is a nice thick piece and will be a great base for a sculpture. Very good seller, with a different and exciting selection.

This is a pretty and interesting piece of Sycamore. I hate to cover very much of it up with the sculpture!

This is a very pretty piece of Maple, and will make a great base for one of my sculptures. Arrived quickly and in great condition. I really am impressed with all the fine woods this shop carries, and the great service the seller provides. Very nice shop and owner. I recommend looking here if you love nice woods for your sculptures.

About

Really like natural wood for basing miniatures.

I found some finished pieces on display at a local farmers market that I could use to display my miniatures. I worked with them to bring the product to the Interwebs and tap a new market for our product. We pull wood from tree removals both private property and marked trees for forest health as well as tree surgery. We also take dead fall and other sources of wood, including scraps from other projects, like cutting boards.

From there the gang sands and finishes the pieces for sale. Currently, we're cherry picking specific pieces to showcase but hopefully we'll be able to add more and more if interest increases.
