Smooth and ready for gluing. Measures approximately 1 1/2" wide, and a full 80" long!
For best results and maximum strength use a toothing plane or a hacksaw blade on the side to be glued for extra strength. This will give the glue something to grab instead of a smooth surface that will soak in the glue. Hickory is hard and tough.
