i would not recommend it , because this lumber is not kiln dried and will crack if installed indoors

Why does the tag say exterior use only?

The whitewood ledger board could be used indoors. The boards have a very rough surface and the boards often are warped or bowed. I've also found that the thickness varies on different parts of the board or from one board to another. The whitewood boards would be fine for interior barn partitions. If you were thinking of using them for a shiplap wall you will find these boards to be a challenge. I have planed and straightened these ledger boards to make a double shed door. I'm not sure it was worth the effort for the price difference of #2 pine.

Can you use this material to build a rustic hall tree with storage?

Hello Neal, For the straightest boards I would recommend select pine. To maintain the presence of some knots and roughness use common pine 1"x boards. You will need to plan for some time culling through the boards to find those that meet you needs. I hope this helps. Cheers, Chris

Why can these not be used as house sheathing?

Asked by Ben July 19, 2018

Answers

They are air dried lower grade and have variable thickness and width. We cannot recommend them for use as house sheathing for these reasons. We strongly recommend plywood or OSB sheathing or kiln dried dressed four sides tongue and groove boards.

What lumber grade are these? Does the air drying make a difference far as strength/quality? Or just more moisture?

Asked by ZEB July 18, 2018

Answers

Lowest grade and quality. They are green and soft and tend to split at the ends. Air drying tends to let warping and splitting happen as it wants.

Can you use these for house sheathing? Like boards folks used before plywood came along?

This was asked before. You could use it in theory, but it would have so many gaps and lumps... there's a reason its not done.

why is this not available in the south? I used it in Northeast, but cannot find it in GA

Raised Garden Bed
Searched 3 stores to find inventory, but bought 12 boards to make 4 raised garden beds. Wood is rough, as expected, but for $5 a board it will do the trick as a cost effective non treated option until they need to be replaced.

Picked some of this up in East Springfield,Ma. and even though it says finish is smooth it's not it looks like rustic rough sawn pine. Does not look anything like the display picture. I make bluebird houses out of these you can get 10 houses out of 6 boards if you figure carefully. Scraps make a few bird feeders with a screen bottom.
