Proudly made in the USA!
The item came exactly as it's pictured and I was very impressed with everything. The package was simple and yet kept the wood block protected. If you're thinking about buying this, do it! You will get your money's worth!
So far superior to the defective boxes that I was buying at a store that will remain nameless. Very relieved to have found you. You have saved my artistic butt. Be on the lookout for a big order.
