But what if you have something that may be straight grain but not seen often :ponder:
I would say straight grain would be ok if there is color variation and its a rare wood. I guess just using best judgment should be fine for most of us.

That is what many of us have. So if you can't add a straight grained rare exotic, just ship an un-changed box to the next person. That was my thought when the straight grained control was advised.

Sorry guys, been a loooonnnnng day. Supposed to been home 5 hours ago. Most of everyone in this swap has been through one before. PLEASE use your best judgment on this. A lot of guys quit joining these because they would get not so good of blanks and they would put VERY good in. If it happens again and I run one later, I will not allow that person in another one. So please, think about what you take out and what you replace it with.
