Thus far most of the wood I had been getting the past couple of years was all rough cut, so no stickers to worry about. Last week I picked up some boards (Bocote,Cocobolo,Wenge,Bloodwood,Yellowheart,Bubinga) from WC when they had the 15% off sale. They put two stickers on every board. One with the price and one with the BF and Price/BF. I don’t like to sand, from the days I used to buy pine from the Borgs. Sanding seemed to push the glue into the wood grain. So I used a Card Scraper sharpened with a light edge to take the residue off, figuring I would ultimately be using one for he finishing stage anyway. Worked for me. Rob
