This Made in America product is sold by width increments only and may appear oval in shape due to the angled cut. All pieces are kiln dried and sanded by Walnut Hollow to ensure the natural tree bark is retained. The width will be between 9-inches (228mm) and 12-inches (305mm) wide by 5/8-inches (16mm) thick. The length will vary as this is a natural product. There may be a small amount of dust from the bark when the package is first opened.
