As advertised but with annoying stickers
I bought 6 boards to make a sofa /console table quickly and without resurfacing. They were delivered cross-country in under a week. The boards are not as perfect as I had hoped for the cost. There are some blemishes but no knots. The boards are not very consistent from board to board, with some discoloration and one of them has distinct tiger eyes which will not look good in the panel glue up. The faces are very smooth but of course will still require final smoothing plane before finishing. They are also not entirely straight; there was over 1/4" of bow in a couple of them. Annoyingly there were three stickers on the faces of each board which didn't peel off cleanly. This defeated the purpose of paying a premium for ready-to-use boards, and is actually much worse than the big box store where at least they staple a label on the end of the board. So be ready to spend some time cleaning off the stickers. Overall I wish I had just gone to the big box store and bought them; honestly it's about the same quality and would have been easier and cheaper to deal with.

I was really hoping for nicer figured wood for cabinet doors but I got about what I expected. Over all very useable wood. I may have to order some maple with nice figuring.
