Asked by Reka February 8, 2017

Answers

No It is not strong enough to support that type of coffee table. The design is wrong. I would not trust it. If some one were to set on it and it were to start to bend to one side it would fall and could hurt some one.

Can you cut one up in the store?

Answers

Hi, I'm happy to answer your question. Yes, Home depot does cut wood. How ever they do not offer precision cuts, so the tolerance is 1/2 inch to any and all cuts for the dimensions requested. Unless other arrangements are made with your local home depot, all cutting requests must be made in store at time of purchase. The amount of free cuts varys by location, please contact your local home depot for more information on their policy.

works for what I needed it for
To start, these are about impossible to find in decent shape at the store. Be prepared to dig through the wood stack to find some decent ones. I used these to build a target stand and its holding up great after a couple of months of use. I just staple cardboard to these and if the wood gets damaged they are easily replaceable for little cost. This product did meet my expectations. Please hit thumbs up if this was helpful.

Sorted though those available to get some that weren't too warped. Not too knotty. Actual size advertised via "specifications" on website was 1.375 in. x 1.37 in. when the actual size was 1.5 in x 1.5 in. (I had to recalculate dimension of my project). In reality, thickness in both directions varied a 1/16 in. or perhaps a bit more. For my purposes, they were adequate.

This was the first and last time I will ever purchase any lumber sight unseen for pick up. Obviously the person who picks the orders has absolutely zero experience or interest in building. The majority or the pieces are severely warped or of such poor quality, they will only make good kindling. This order was quite disappointing, definitely not the quality I have come to expect when I make an in store purchase. I thought it would save time.

I had to sort through 50+ strips just to find 11 in usable condition. Several were severely warped, twisted, split, or missing large sections of bark - or ALL of the above!

I've been buying 2x2x8 for two years, I use them to make frames for bars to attach the façade, the frame is visible from he inside of the bar, so I was very happy with the finish and feel of this wood and how well it took stains and sealers. Yesterday I went to the Home Depot (Near Colonial dr and Semoran blvd, Orlando, FL) and bought 4 6-packs of 2x2x8, today I opened them up, every single piece was absolute trash, very poorly cut, bent, twisted, with all kinds of marks and black stains, and staples all over the wood. I have 6 leftovers from my last project and the difference is night and day, the branding seems to be different, so I don't think they come from the same mill, however the price is the same (And quite high tbh compared to a year ago). I'm returning all of them and moving on to another construction store that I'll keep from mentioning to avoid biasing this review. (Attaching pictures, showing the 24 I bought yesterday and on the floor the 6 I had from a previous purchase)
