When purchasing a piece of lumber for your projects, ask your lumberyard if they will sell you wood that has a higher grade of wood. If in doubt, use a service like Woodworkers Warehouse. I prefer to buy lumber from a local lumber yard that has a good reputation. Your local lumber yard should be able to provide you with lumber in the proper grade for the project.
I have to look at each and every piece of lumber that I buy for my projects. Is this going to be an unnecessary headache or a waste of time?
Yes, especially if you’re the type that likes to use the same lumber for many different projects. The more you spend on lumber the more likely it is that you will find the same product in various different shapes.
Once I buy lumber I’m going to have to cut, shape and finish it. How important is that part of the process?
It’s really important to work with each piece of lumber in the right way to maximize productivity and to achieve the overall look you’re after. That’s why it’s so important to have a great deal of control over both the cutting of each piece and the finish you choose for that piece.
I am buying lumber that I know will be a few years from being ready to complete this project. How long do I have to wait?
A little longer. Most lumberyards will allow you the extra time needed to finish the lumber while it is still in their inventory. If you want to start a project earlier, ask your lumberyard for a special time to start it.
You only get one chance to finish a project. Will a piece of lumber still be available after the deadline?
Yes, the more you buy, the sooner it is gone. Once a piece is gone it is completely gone no more.
What about buying a piece of lumber at an estate sale when you know there may be others that are still available?
It’s always a good idea to shop around to find good deals on lumber. That is why we have a great deal of competition in our marketplace.
What if I am in the middle of a project and have my fingers crossed that the same piece of lumber I’ve already bought will not be available?
It’s always wise to shop around to find the highest quality pieces.
