Got a notion to build some shelves around the desk that I use for my computer. Didn't feel like going to the lumber yard for 3 boards, finally received these, cut them to my plans, painted them and the desk a hi-gloss black, assembled everything, and am extremely delighted with the outcome. I would upload a picture, but it would then show how junkie my house is. Sorry.
Had a project and got everything for it on Amazon. THese boards were great. Was worried they'd be very knotty or warped, but they were clean. Couldn't have picked three better boards if I went to the lumber yard.
The board came on time and in good condition, S4S.
One end had a rough cut to it and required a cut to true it up. There was an approximate 1/8" warp in the board, not enough to worry about as it was going to be screwed onto brackets.
Even though S4S it was not very smooth and I used a 5" ROS going from 40 to 220 to get the surfaces smooth enough so that I wouldn't have to worry about them catching on anything. Currently used as utility shelf over my shop sink. If I had to put it someplace else I would probably prime and paint it, although there is just enough attractive grain where an oil finish might work.
Decent price for a board. Deducting one star for the warping, the rough cut and having to sand it beyond the basic work done at the mill. Would purchase again for utility shelving purposes, not for show.
