Stable indeed. Still flat after a dozen years. It's a really fine-grained wood,
slick and smooth.
I ran the boxwood over a tailed jointer to begin with, but that left a rippled
surface. I think the jointer blades kinda bounced off. Then I took one pass with
my Jatoba Krenov smoother with a Hock iron and all the ripples were gone. Funny-
looking shaving: rippled on the top, smooth on the bottom.
Thanks for the kind words.
