Middle of Nowhere OK
Beautiful, but short and narrow
First, let me say I have ordered several $1000s in lumber from Woodworkers and 98% of the pieces come in quickly and beautiful. This order of 50 bd ft was no exception. The wood looks great; however there is one "negative" worth mentioning (hence the markdown). According to the description, the boards are 4"-10" wide of various lengths. All but about 8 board feet were less than 4" wide (average 3.75") and the longest piece was 38". This would have been good information to have before I ordered the lumber. Fortunately this will work out well for my end table project as the widest/longest board (other than the table top) will only be 3"x22". Now, three caveats... 1) I did have the boards straight line ripped, so that could have been why almost every board was under 4". 2) Another reviewer did mention that the boards came in short and narrow for him, but the description was supposed to be corrected to reflect that. 3) I did not request specific board sizes because in the $1000s of orders I have placed I have always received boards well over 4" (most in the 6-8" range). Maybe that is my fault for not requesting... All-in-all, I love the wood and it will work for my needs, but be careful when ordering. Anyone have any ideas for finishing Shedua?

It is a pretty piece of lumber, This was the first time I've seen this wood, would have preferred more grain if possible? The thickness was only 3/4" not 4/4". Still a pretty piece of wood!!!
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice
