Minimal Striping

I bought one 20BF pack and the boards are all true. Mostly 6' lengths with 5" widths, though there were two 9" wide boards. The only issue is that the ribbon stripe figure in very coarse, and not particularly impressive in straightness with respect to the length of the boards. Very disappointing yet also very usable. I'm still going to use it, and I'm sure I won't have any complaints one I start cutting. It's just not quite what I thought I was paying for. If you buy it for the forgiveness of the wood, you probably won't be let down, just don't expect to see as tight striping as shown in the photos.

I ordered a total of 30 BF. 1-20BF Bundle and 1-10BF Bundle. Both came wrapped neatly and protected the wood. Delivery was right on time. The quality of the wood was terrific. I had one board with a small crack from the end running about 6 inches. I was able to work around this with minimal waste of wood. I am happy with the process, and in fact need to order some more to finish my project. Calculation error on my part. I have recommended this website to several of my friends.

The only thing was two boards had a split down the middle, so I will have to use it for a small projects. Other than that the wood is great.
