Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Flooring is beautiful, you wont be dissapointed!
We just purchased a new spec home and they were going to put carpet in the master. We wanted something other then the oak hardwood they did in the rest of the house. We saw the sample at the store and a few nice pictures here and were sold. The finished product (had builder install) was amazing. The flooring was installed in a 20x14 room and a big master closet in a morning. We didn't hear any complaints about sizes but they are proffesional installers so they are probably use to that. Did say they had very little waste in 19 boxes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nick Nice flooring, large variation and several boxes of waste
We loved the floor other than the demonstration pieces do not fully represent the color variation from sapwood to heartwood (maple like to dark oak). There were several pieces that were poorly cut or had to be discarded. Will check to see if we can return them. The finish is nice, and it seems to be a quality product overall but the mill could be a little bit better (not as good as say Bruce or Bellawood in accuracy)

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RNYH This product has a beautiful finish, but tne installation was difficult because of the varying widths of the boards.
I was pleased with the finish of this product, but installing it was another story, especially when I got to the last few strips. The floor was advertised as 4" in width, but each of the eight boxes that I purchased had pieces that varied by 1/16 of an inch. This wasn't a huge issue until I got to the end of the project. With a limited number of pieces, I had difficulty avoiding noticeable gaps.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by chappy66 Great for a Spa look.
Great looking product with a high quality finish. Dimensions were consistent also over the ten cases purchased. Wide range of color variations (which was desired with this flooring) and lengths. Great product!

Had professionally installed 1 year ago. Flooring is beautiful with all the variances in color. Have 2 Great Danes that have grown up on the floor and it still looks great. Easy upkeep.

I recently purchased this pproduct and installed it in my living room and kitchen. It looks great, the finish is superb and the color pattern looks good. I recommend this product for anyone looking for an authentic hardwood look.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IAMJM Do yourself a favor, buy something else.
This wood looks good in the box, but is really a pain with inconsistent width & thicknesses. Only by a 64th, but oh what a pain. Happened with every box, and I bought 34 boxes. You get what you pay for. Calls to the manufacture didn't help. You would be less hassled to buy one of the other brands. This one is crummy!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Severely cupped after 4 months
There were a significant number of boards discolored with a stained look (very different from the dark to light color variation which is expected in hickory). I set them aside and had to buy another couple boxes to finish my 1500 sf first floor. The real issue however is after a 4-5 months we noticed the floor was cupped pretty bad. I installed the floor after the wood had been inside the house for 3 months, and the AC system was running during some of the installation, other days the windows were open. I have no understanding/explanation of what went wrong. I would recommenced not doing a whole house yourself. Its hard work and it might be beautiful when your done and then cup..... I am wondering if I ever sand it for refinishing if that will fix it....I have read companies used to store wood two or more years before using it to prevent this effect, and now they use kilns to dry it. SO maybe its not something I did... The internet had a million contradictory ideas about what causes this cupping, -I then I learned it happens to a lot of folks... It was a lot or work and expense for this result.
