The edges are straight. A little sanding would do the trick if round is what your looking for.

Is this wood strong enough to stand on it to oaint a ceiling . To. Use a a plsnk

Asked by Tim November 14, 2019
1
Answer

The weight any size of lumber will support is based on the distance between the items supporting the lumber...2"x6" lumber is rarely used for staging or scaffolding, you would be safer to use 2"x8" lumber and far more safer to use 2"x10" lumber, 2"x10" and 2"x12" are normally the sizes used for staging and scaffolding...

is this wood good for decking and can it be stained and sealed?

Asked by Tony October 4, 2019
2
Answers

It can be stained and sealed as I used it for raised garden beds and they have been through 2 seasons and are still holding up well. I used Behr Premium Solid Color Waterproofing Exterior Wood Stain and Sealer because I wanted a solid finish, but it comes in Opaque also. For a deck, I would use pressure treated deck boards because they will last longer. They stain and seal well with the above product.

can this be used to make a picnic table?

Asked by iceman January 6, 2019
5
Answers

Yes, however this lumber is not treated to prevent rot, you would need to stain or paint this lumber to prevent rot and damage due to being exposed the weather, remember to check the food safety warnings of any product you apply to a picnic table...Your project would be safer if you used a wood that naturally resists rot and insects, such as redwood, cedar, mahogany or teak, which can be sealed with mineral oil and bees wax...

I bought a couple of these 8’ pieces to build a DIY bench. This wood is very easy to sand and work with. I started to get into an art form where you burn the wood to give it a certain look that makes the wood grain pop out. This wood worked perfect and was very easy to burn. I’ll def keep going with this type.

True timber
Make sure you select lumber true & ill of any cracks. Trying to take out a curve on job site not only delays your project but can effect your finish. Which will effect other trades ex Drywallers tilers etc

Frustrated with personnel of home depot
Ordered12 pcs of 2x6 spruce 8’ long. The man brought them out to me in a shopping cart. 3 of the boards were grinding on the parking lot. Full of slush, soaking wet. Sent 10 back in. Way too twisted to work with. He came back, i sent 8 back. Fourth time i gave up. I now have kindling for camping.
