Great black stripping on all my boards. 3 of 5 will work for the shelving on my planned project with one of them having few checks that will be easy to seal. The other two boards are not as nice: one is very cupped, and the other has a really bad twist l, but I'll be able to use them in other projects after breaking down. Great value for the price.

Hardwood is good!
Ordered the Goncalo Alves pack for a few reasons: 1. I have been in construction/remodeling for many years but recently have been trying to expand my shop so that I can do more fine woodworking projects, so I want to have quality hardwoods on hand to work with; and 2) I want to try different hardwoods to work with so that I can expand my knowledge of hardwood lumber and also, so that I will have variety of grain patterns, etc. to produce different looking finished products; and 3) This pack was on sale at a reasonable price and offered Free Shipping which, made it a great value. Overall, I'm satisfied with my purchase. Website was easy to navigate and product descriptions were helpful. Shipping was prompt. Boards were received in good condition despite being poorly packaged (box was torn to h _ _ _ when I received it). The boards that I received are relatively straight and flat, though several have a slight bow in them that is fixable but will require additional milling which is a bit disappointing. I like the product selection WW Source offers so if they continue to offer quality lumber at good prices with free or low-cost shipping, it is likely I will consider them for future purchases. Sales prices are good; everyday prices could be better.

Goncalo Alves
All other woods I rate as five but this pack (10bf) had a cupped board. I do smaller projects and every board inch counts. I will continue to order all my specialty and hardwoods from Woodworkers Source. Great service and very good prices. Shipping costs are phenomenal.
Familiarity: I've used it in a LOT of projects

Pleasantly surprised for the price. I have done a lot of work with Goncalo Alves(tigerwood), in a variety of pieces. From cutting boards to shelving. Was a little disappointed in the lack of black striping in the grain. Will not be able to use for scheduled projects. Will be able to use in others. Overall very pleased for the price.
