Questions & Answers

Can this be used as a post for a raised garden?

Can this be used as a post for a raised garden?
Asked by: IslandCapture
That's my plan. I figure that because it is untreated it will be safe. I wouldn't use the treated or pressure treated material as it is usually not safe for growing vegetables, or even for much skin contact. Now, about the gradual rotting: that is going to happen, likely in less than a decade. However, I see that as a benefit, not a problem. Gently rotting wood is a huge asset in the garden (hugelkultur is the term to search). It is especially useful in a raised bed as you can simply bury it way down at the bottom of your bed, and then replace. This might only need doing once every 8-10 years depending on the location, and seasons.

Can you cut these down custom for me? 3"x3"

Can you cut these down custom for me? 3"x3"
Asked by: Quentin
The Home Depot has rules concerning cutting of lumber in the store, and most stores will only cut dimensional lumber, such as 2x4s and 4x4s, vertically. Home Depot's sheet-goods saw is capably of cutting only plywood and a few other similar sheet wood materials. Stores may also have rules against cutting chemically treated woods and non-wood sheet goods because of the release of harmful dusts or because of damage to the saw that could occur. However, anyone who has a good table saw capable of handling the length and thickness should be able to do this, as well as anyone skilled with an adequately sized circular saw. The most accurate cut would likely come from using a table saw. You might also see about ordering the 3x3 dimension, which is not a "common" dimension, as a custom order available from some wood suppliers.

We do small wood working projects and this is exactly what we have been looking for. It is good quality and non-pressure treated. The only down fall is Florence AL Homedepot is the only place that has it within a 3 hour drive of Shiloh TN. We have called every store even competitors and this is the only store. The hour and a half drive each way is a downfall, but we are thankful we can get it.

I live in palm beach gardens so it would be awesome if you would carry these in our store! I don’t want to have to drive or pay extra for you to. You should offer ship from store to store free to customers.

Bad Bad Product, Picture shown above is not representative of the actual product sold in stores. I drove far out of my way to go to The Home Depot so that I could get the lumber pictured above for a piece of furniture I was building only to find out that it is very far from the product sold in stores. At first I assumed it was just due to variation in the wood but upon closer inspection out of the hundred or post pieces not a single one was even close to the one in the picture. Home Depot wasted my time and money that could have been used too feed and provide for my family. If this was the first time something like this happened I might have been able to brush it off unfortunately has happened multiple times over the past few years.
