Actually hardwoods are from deciduous trees and softwoods are from nondeciduous trees(evergreen). oddly enough even balsa is considered a hardwood.

I think wagon wheels had a elm hub and oak spokes and rim.
Roy Underhill had an episode on it.

next project is to build a shed for the lawn mower and tools. A sawmill is down the road and he cut and sell me wood for framing or anything else. He only has hardwood. He also told me you have to use it quick (didn’t say how quick) or I’ll not be able to nail it and will have to use bolts to tie it together. He’s 40 miles closer than Lowes or HD and his price for a 2×4x8’ is $2.50. Figure I’m going to need quite a few to complete the project and thought this might be the way to go. Any thoughts?

Sounds like a good price. Should have a shed to last forever too! Like he said, nail it while it’s still green or…
