    Umar, judging by the 3rd photo of the ends, I would say no. If you're still interested, get in touch with me and I can share Nigel's mobile. You may want to call him because he's delivering the 7 boards to me this arvo and I know that you live near me. He was happy to include delivery if I increased my order to 7 boards. If he's unwilling to deliver it to Kuraby, you can ask him to deliver your boards to my place and you can pick it up from here. Just a suggestion.



    Cheers,
    Mike

    Thanks for the offer Mike, but this would be the weekend I'm not in Brisbane! I was hoping there'd be a board or two quartersawn, but I think your eyes are keen enough, there doesn't look to be any.

    The fact it has been SQUARE dressed all round is a BONUS as it saves on the time and cost of machining which if one was to order it dressed would make the COST quite higher.

    Your logic is flawed. 19mm thick is the minimum finished dimension you end up with in furniture making, not where you start - ever. Also, you're boards are cupped so the finished thickness will be a couple mm minimum less than that. So, being square dressed means absolutely nothing as they will need to be run over a jointer and through a planer to flatten out again. As such the starting dimension is 19mm thick - not 25mm.
