Questions & Answers

is the actual thickness 1 inch and width 5 1/2 inches?

also can an order be shipped to the Marion IL store (which doesn't stock it) to be picked up? Thanks.
Asked by: jim
The ones I bought in North Haven, CT were about 7/8" actual by 5 1/2" actual. Was able to find a few without any knots, but that took some digging and time.

What is he difference between Kiln-Dried vs cedar lumber that doesn’t specify that in the title?

Asked by: GardeningMom
Wood naturally has moisture content and so kiln dried wood has it's moisture reduced to an ideal amount by a particular drying process.

Is this a good type of wood for garden bed?

Asked by: Question
Be aware that cedar WILL rot if buried in the ground, even 4x4 posts. If, like me, you use it for a raised bed the inside of the board will rot as it can never dry, the outside will still look good. It just takes longer to rot than pine in the same situation. I suggest you consider lining the inside faces of the garden bed with plastic so the wood isn't always in contact with the dirt. Of course this is a theory only, I've not tested it.

Are these 8' 0" and square on both ends?

Asked by: SMonson
Lumber mills do not cut oerfect end cuts, they have some variation and the saw they use is coarse. If you need a perfect cut end, use a chop saw and trim each piece yourself. Lumber is manufactured fast to make it cheap enough so sellers like Home Depot will buy it. This is standard procedure in the lumber industry and always has been.

5/4 in. x 6 in. x 8 ft. Premium Kiln-Dried Cedar Lumber is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.

This is good cedar and it has limitations. Sapwood isn't rot resistant and most boards are slab cut which warps with moisture intrusion. If you select the better boards it will be OK. You should learn about wood properties in general before using this . Here in Idaho there are better sources, but elsewhere probably not.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cedar can decay, only cedar 'Heartwood' is resistant, never 'Sapwood' Western Red Cedar from young trees has high percentages of sapwood, and the sapwood has NO decay resistance. You can identify the sapwood by its color. All western red cedar sapwood has the color of a plain manila file folder you might buy from any office supply store, Heartwood in western red cedar can be any color from light pink to chocolate brown, but sapwood is always the same manila folder color. Home Depot's cedar decking is called 'Premium', unfortunately there is no such grade in western red cedar, and there never has been. #3 and better, is a possible grade, so is architect knotty, or Quality and better (usually a mix of select grade and the lower grade of quality) People at these box stores don't know much about lumber, especially cedar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a porch Ordered online and still got quality wood. I was a little nervous that we may end the bad boards but everything was great and the porch turned out great.
