Boards arrived in good shape. One of them had a small dent, in a shape as if it was hit against the corner of something, I assumed this happened in the shipping process. That was not a big deal. The only reason I did not give five stars is that the oil had come loose and leaked out on to a few of the boards and soaked one corner of the cardboard a bit. It was not a significant amount of oil, not enough to ask for a return and wait on a new package, but enough to be an annoyance and wish that it didn't happen. This was a perfect amount of wood to make a decent size cutting board but I am going to order more wood to make a bigger one and a few as gifts.
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice
