View Full Version : Has anyone purchased the seconds blocks from Barclay?
Just wondering if you would talk me into or out of it? TIA!

They're great. They just have more obvious grain than the firsts, as far as I can tell. I recommend them highly.

I had the same experience. More grain, but they look fantastic.

I was disappointed in my seconds. I expected very slight discoloration, but I received many blocks that had quite a bit of discoloration and some of the blocks were completely dark brown. I was a bit peeved because the photos of the seconds don't show blocks that were as dark and discolored as some of the ones I received. Fortunately, the ones that were completely dark brown were small. I am about to order additional blocks from them to supplement my initial kit, and I am going to order firsts this time.
