    Might be made by Cowboy. They use hard wood trim scraps as well.

    It's a great use of scrap wood. :)

    It is still hardwood, no? Made from oak, maple? Same stuff they use to make Royal Oak and all the others, the stuff you have just happens to have run through a sawmill.

    What's the problem?

    I find a piece of flooring or trim in just about every bag I use of most brands personally, burns just like the rest of the scrap, only it's prettier looking.

    'Course you'd have to wash your feet good afore getting in bed :laugh:
  • so what?

    it's hardwood oak (or maple). some folks who are quick to pounce have assumed it was torn up from a house or stolen from a dumpster, but there aren't nails in the stuff, and it isn't finished.

    when flooring is made, cuts are made on each side of knots and other imperfections. that yields nice looking random length flooring, and it also yields scrap. wood that is simply in the shaope of T&G flooring.

    you'll also find short lengths of S4S lumber in there too.

    i actually LIKE the stuff occasionally. i can get to 750 with the light stuff, cowboy, sooner than i can with R/O, WW, etc. dense charcoal has its pluses, but so does the lighter stuff.

    culled lumber is absolutely fine, and i think that it is a good use of wood that might otherwise end up in a landfill

    Or just get yourself a skid/pallet of one of the best like Wicked Good and call it good.

    since that finding bothered you then you might want to brace yourself for when you dump out your first rocks! There's no conspiracy to defraud happen in natural lump.
