Ok I have a few projects under my belt and have found a local store besides HD that sells some different types of wood. I am getting used to the 4/4 or whatever sizing vs a fraction.
The question I have is if I want say 4×4 or 2×2 square legs is everybody gluing up individual pieces or should I be asking for a cut of lumber. OI was on one of the popular mail order wood dealers and noticed the do sell say 4×4 by 36” blanks or??
Sometimes I hate going to lumber yard as they loose patience quick with beginners. I could never understand why loose say 20% of you potential customers. Why not just post some simple signs answering basic questions relating to the pieces. anyway…..
Are we all gluing up are legs or buying say 4×4 and cutting to size?
