Beautiful, clear board
I've not yet used this board. It will be primarily for a fretboard. The only but of criticism that I have at this time is that it would be good if more paraffin/end grain sealer were applied by WWS. I like in a climate with much higher RH than the WWS warehouse so, I did see some checking as the wood acclimated. Honestly, it was a trio of issues that led to this, with the largest responsibility falling on my shoulders for not thinking to beef up the end-grain seal, as well as a major heatwave hitting just as the wood was delivered, causing far more stress than it would have seen otherwise. Will almost definitely buy again, though, I am searching for more domestics that can take this role.

Came as expected. Color is a bit lighter than expected
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice

Great selection!
My order arrived in fantastic condition. Overall, the boards were amazing. The color was better than the sample I requested, and the grain patterns were rich with interest. I requested minimal sapwood, and they delivered. Less than 1 square inch of yellow on all 44 square feet. The only reason this isn't rated as a perfect 5 stars is because a sizable 1" knot was loose and found within one board near the one side edge. I can work around it, and for the only imperfection in a wood order, sight unseen, I'm still very happy with it. (I might even just epoxy it, and use it as a point of interest). I'll be sure to use these guys for my next big project.
