A few points:

1. I couldn’t really see from the photos that there was cupping. I would retract my “acceptable” if there is much of that.

2. I have ordered 20 bf project packs from Wall Lumber with excellent results (no cupped or twisted boards).

3. You might be surprised how much better you feel about this lumber once you rip and crosscut it to size for your project. When you are used to seeing S4S lumber in the expensive section of Lowes or Home Depot, it’s a bit of a jolt the first time you see S2S straight from the mill. But once you get those rough edges off it starts to look a whole lot better.
