The grading of stock blanks is extremely subjective but I’ve tried to keep our grading
system as simple as possible.
The criteria we use are as follows:
Wood Density: Dense enough to hold carving details well.
.Curl and Figure: The amount of stripe or quilted area.
Uniformity: This is how uniform the curl or figure is in the entire length of the stock.
Intensity: The amount of curl or figure in the blank.
