hey all, i buy my hardwood usually in rough slabs (with the bark on both ends)
on the slabs i used to buy they had marked the width on the slab in blue spray from the mill, the slabs i get now come without marking and it’s the guy from the yard that measures them, and i am wondering if he is doing it right.
with widest or smallest i mean the up or down side of the slab where you have the most or fewest bark, since it’s not quartersawn it can on some slabs devide in two the usable part of the slab.
when i measure with both methods i get a difference of 20%.
anybody know the correct method?
