I love these, “i put them here for me, but somebody else will probably get some use out of them to” threads.

Thanks for posting them.

Thanks for sharing the links. The lumber chart looks like it will be very helpful. The color codes on the lumber chart are a little counter-intuitive, but once you get passed that it is good.
