Stunning!
This is the most beautiful wood I have worked with. The grain pattern is amazing! A couple of boards were bowed, but woodworkers sent out a replacement in no time.
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice

Great Looking lumber
Have not yet used the canarywood lumber. I purchased it primary to see this wood given it was at a reduce price and free shipping. After looking over the 5 pieces, this lumber looks great and have beautiful color. I'm thinking about a larger purchase of this lumber.

Excellent in all respects. Material received was the size and thickness as advertised. Planer skips (as advertised) were minimal and were easily cleaned up. Good value for the money.
