The boards were very flat and smooth, with the one-edge ripping perfectly clean and straight. They were surprisingly clear, with very little waste from knots or bad grain. The assortment of widths was also good, with two pieces 8" wide. My only trivial complaint is that apparently the one-edge ripping cost a lot of material, as the 20 bf project packs came in at about 18 bf. No big deal, as the waste was much smaller than I expected, almost none, so I got my money's worth.
