100% of our Amber Crowns are cut and colored here in Otto, NC. This enables us to offer the best quality and yield possible. Our Crowns are available in many different lengths. The vast majority of our crowns have little to no pith and make for very solid handles and are ideal candidates for our Amber coloring process. All lengths are measured from the short crown end to the cut end. In other words, you can expect 3 ½” crowns will have a total length of close to 4 ½”. Occasionally, we can cut crowns larger than 5”. Please call for availability and pricing. Above photo: notice the color and consistency differences between the split cut sections of characteristically similar pieces.
