Modeler12 Posted April 17, 2015 Share #1 Posted April 17, 2015 I just received a number of sheets of wood from Jason at Crown Timberyard and decided to make some measurements of the thicknesses. The sheets were clearly marked in plastic packages and looked very smooth and neat. They were two inches wide except for one four inch wide piece of holly that he had included for my evaluation. The latter had streaks of grey in various locations but might be interesting when used for deck planking. It also was very smooth.The Swiss pear sheets are excellent with very uniform grain distribution. A couple of the boxwood sheets, however, had some distinct grain stripes but certainly not obtrusive. All in all I am very pleased with the appearance. I took three samples to measure (I will do the same with the others later). One is a sheet of Swiss pear at a nominal 1/8 inch thickness. The other two are Castello boxwood at 1/4 and 1/32 inch nominal thickness. Hence it covers the range of sheet thicknesses I ordered. I probably should have included the 1/16 inch thick holly, but that comes later. The results are shown below. The 1/32 inch piece is a bit on the 'heavy' side, but overall the thickness measurements are within a nice tolerance.
