Awesome boards, but don't try to steam bend
Great product, but note that it is kiln-dried. I read that if you soak kiln-dried wood for a few days you can steam bend it. Not true. I wanted to make arched top window frames, but I guess they'll be square.

Beautiful Piece of Wood!
I was unsure if such a nice piece of wood could make the trip to Iowa. It did and even had some small imperfection which will enhance the look of the finished product.
