available. The wood is thoroughly seasoned for six months to a year
before being glued up into boards. After being glued up, it is put
through another seasoning process of three months before the final
finish or dressing-down process is done, assuring a board of absolute
evenness throughout its entire surface. Made in Maple and Boxwood.
