Not all usable, needs a lot of work
Per reviews on this site for other figured maple billets, the pictures for this product are misleading. The billets are not sawn square and some have live edge - at this price you are getting what you pay for. One end of the piece may be 6in, the other may be 10in. The description says there may be minor imperfections but these are not minor, they are major and mean that there is a relatively small amount that you can extract as a contiguous, straight edged piece compared to the overall size of the billet. There is plenty of good figured wood in it, but expect to be cutting this into smaller pieces and flattening all 6 sides. Don't expect to use it as a big solid piece or for sawing into wide planks. I can't really complain at this price, but Woodcraft should be more transparent with the advertising. Some example pictures of the raw wood would have helped.
