This 5/8" thick basswood cross section cut is slowly dried to prevent warping, cracking and to preserve the bark. It is finely sanded and ready for woodburning, painting and other craft uses. The basswood rounds may vary greatly in size and shape on this natural item - size can vary between 11" to 12" across the narrow side. Due to the rustic nature of this product, we cannot accommodate special requests such as size, shape, or clarity. We appreciate your understanding!
