Very good boards
I purchased 9 of these boards. Only 2 of them were bowed enough to worry about - one has just over a 1" rise across the total 6' length. I'll have to cut that one down, plane/join it flat, and use it as a shelf or something. The others are mostly flat, less than 1/4" of bow along the 6' length. All of them will need run through the joiner to achieve perfect straightness. I should end up with 1/2" straight and flat boards when finished, which works out great for me. 3 boards have large knots, but only on one face of the board. I can probably hide the knots on this project, assuming they don't tear out in the planar, and the cathedrals on the opposite side are attractive. None of the boards have twist, which is great. All the peices have nice grain and figure. They are all dimensioned to the same size. 3/4" x 5.5" x 6'. Packaging was good and shipping was reasonably fast. Only 1 board had a dent from shipping, and I think I can iron it out. All in all, I'm happy with the product and couldn't really expect much better. Thanks guys!

Stunning grain for a project board
I wanted an 1x6x6 to make a wooden beer mug for my father, and I have to say I am very impressed with the grain for a "hobby board". Certainly FAS grade.

Walnut boards
Beautiful walnut, dimensioned properly. Only one of the six boards has a knot that I will cut around or perhaps incorporate as a focal in a project. Delivery was excellent and packaging was exceptional.
Familiarity: I've used it in several projects
