GRADING SYSTEM

We grade our wood into six grading levels, from Exhibition Select to Utility.

 

Grade

Description

Exhibition Select

Exceptional one-of-a-kind pieces.

Exhibition

100% figure, nice color, one-of-a-kind pieces.

Fancy Select

75% figure, nice color.

Fancy

Nice color, 50% figure.

Semi-Fancy

Nice color, 10% figure or better.

Utility

Plain wood, nice color and grain flow. Our utility grade wood is in fact considered fancy by many people's standards and is a lot prettier, and higher quality, than most of your factory stocks. Remember, most of your factory stocks are kiln dried.
