These natural-looking wooden letters are very unique! The only improvement I would suggest to the seller is to try to match up the entire look of the letters by sending all birch wood or all bass wood. The birch is so different from the bass wood that they dont look good when used as one word. The item description stated the letters would be randomly picked and I was willing to take the chance on how well they would match. When spelling the word GRATEFUL, only the G and the L matched well. (The G and L were bass wood and all the other letters were birch.) In the end, I creatively used different ways to achieve a way to make the letters look fairly good when placed together. For roughly $30, I did end up with a unique and hard to find decoration. With a little work on my end, Im happy with my purchase!
