    The big ones are just over 15" long and have some weight to them. All are flat on the opposite side with the same finish and very close to the same texture. I really liked the hardwood appearance and handmade qualities about them.

      Thanks very much kyratango. I honestly don't know if I ever would have typed in the right filters to get all those great links. I really appreciate you doing the leg work for me.
