Vintage Paper Micarta
Size: The thickness on the piece these are cut from is 2". If you order a 1" block it will be 1" wide with the layers on the 2" side.
This appears to be a phenolic material made with layers of very coarse paper which gives it a unique appearance. There are (16) 1/8" layers which make up this 2" thick block and give it a stacked leather look on the side. It polishes up beautifully to a rich dark walnut color. It is a very hard material that will not absorb moisture.
**Please note that due to the fact that this is old material, there will be some surface scratches and other possible imperfections. **
We do not know the exact age or manufacturer of this "micarta". It came off of a very old workbench that had been used in a machine shop for decades.
