I ordered this product with no specific project planned just really wanted some walnut, unsure how it would be since buying lumber online can be, sometimes, well... disappointing.. But Woodworkers Source did not disappoint! The wood is beautiful and clear, there is a small void in the back of the wood where a knot was, but that's nothing that a little epoxy won't fix! Beautiful coloring, and very little variation with sapwood. My only suggestion would be, if you do not have a jointer or a good hand plane, pay the extra couple cents to have them straight line rip.
