    12"+ long x 2"+ wide x 1"+ thick on the 2 front ones. There will be some waste when I trim away flawed portions.

    My perspective is;
    This was not a profitable purchase.
    But I learned about cutting snakewood. It is like cutting ironwood.
    The source I mentioned in Surinam is able to provide custom cutting.
    If I buy snakewood from them I will let them do the rough cutting.

    I like it, it's not too busy and has nice color. Sometimes outrageous figure can get in the way.

    Looks nice, reminds me of an old deacon's bench my grandfather made. He was a carpenter, but I know it wasn't snakewood hehe. Not busy, but very nice colour on that wood

    Often less is more.
