I have recently purchased a bit a lumber for a few projects I am planning to build. I am eager to get started on these projects, but it has been recommended that I let the wood acclimate for a few more weeks before I start making sawdust.
So…My question(s)...How do the rest of you buy lumber, do you always buy it with a project in mind, resulting in a shop full of lumber but nothing to do for a few weeks?
Do you plan a number of projects in advance and as you prepare to start one, you go out and buy for the project will follow?
Do you just go out and buy a bunch of lumber and wait then start looking for a project that you can use it for?
Do you search the bargin bin so there is always something to use in your shop?
