    I don't think that one will fit in a Flat Rate box Larry. You might need to find a bigger box before you ship it to me.

    well , here is the idea i have 9 of these they are approx 24" on the narrow end and around 44 on the widest these are table slabs and i am gonna part with some of them..they are 2.5" thick and i will get pics of the rest tomorrow with the actual dimensions..they are still green so will need to be dried before table use, but they could be whacked up into turner pieces any suggestions or serious interest.. pm me..
