Wow thanks to everyone for posting. I don’t think I’ve ever received so many great responses from a forum post before. I will be continuing to use this site and your great advise. I found out that I don’t know that much about wood. # 1 the answer to my question above is that I bought construction grade furring strips for my 1×2, 1×3, and 1×4s duh, how’d I mess that one up. I realize now that I’m using very very cheap white wood not pine as pine is not much cheaper than poplar at my Lowes. I’m ok with that for this project I’m halfway done with my hall tree and have learned allot like where to line the saw up with my pencil mark, how to cut a straight line with a circular saw, and how not to overdrive a screw, which I didn’t expect that to be a problem, but it was. Anyway it’s been fun takes awhile when you can’t devote a whole day to it and your taking two steps foward and one step back, but I’m looking forward to making things myself vs. spending my hard earned dollars on cheap fall apart stuff made in China.
