Sanded to 500 grit, polished, and photographed. No finish, no laquer, just natural beauty!
*In the Bargain Bin due to poor resin uptake. These are beautiful scales, black poplar is typically a naturally stable wood, but with burl it can be a bit unstable from time to time. This piece doesn't have enough burl to concern me about the stability, it just turned out light and is not as hard as typical stabilized wood.*
Weight (oz): 3.4
Shore D Hardness: 68
All scales and blocks are stabilized unless otherwise noted. Wood is a naturally occurring material, though beautiful, there may be voids, checks, or cracks that are not apparent to the naked eye. All care is taken to describe any visible flaws in the material description.
Shore D is the scale that tests resin hardness, this is used as a quantitative scale to assess the resin uptake of the wood.
