I have been searching for years to find a good source for high grade Karelian Birch.
Today a sample package of these blocks showed up in the mail.
One of the forum members here helped me to get this wood from Russia.
I am really excited about this wood and will try to get a lot more of this. These ones are on their way to K&G for stabilizing.
When I get them back they will be more of an amber color. The figure in these will be very 3 dimensional with a lot of random contrasting dark lines. These have much better quality figure than any I have been able to find before.
