I got this wood for $25 at the recycling center. It's all about 2" x 12" x 37". There is some checking and the edges are pretty rough and rotted in a couple places. Some of it looks like redwood, though I'm not sure. I got 7 pieces. Pairs seem like they would be more than large enough for a body with plenty of play. What do you think, worth the money, about $4-5 per board? Will the checking be a problem, or can this be glued or filled with something? I was pricing body blanks and the cost is really high these days, especially when shipping ends up at $25 and up. I figured I'd get some practice in on some cheaper wood. Though it looks like these boards will require time and effort to get into shape. For reference the long ruler is 42" and the small one is 6"
