We had a limb fall from a tree and break one of our rails in two. Can you purchase a single rail?

Answer

No. Only way I could purchase was a four pack.

Can I order just six rails ( 1.5 pack)

I am only aware of 4 boards to a pack.

Is this safe for children to climb?

Asked by Grampat July 6, 2019

Answers

I would advise against children climbing on this rough sawn red cedar. It is easy to get splinters when coming into contact with the wood. After installing garden boxes using the wood, I forgot to wear gloves when working in the garden and used the boxes to support myself with my hands on occasion - the result was nine tiny splinters.

Is the wood 2" deep and 4" wide?

Answers

The actual dimensions of these backer rails are 1-1/2 in. thick by 3-1/2 in. wide. Please keep in mind the size can vary 1/8 in. due to the natural characteristics of the wood.

How many in pack?

There are four backer rails per order.

I bought these here for $21.97 in early 2016. Why did the price jump from$ 21.97 to $62.32?

Answer

Only Home Depot knows but I suspect you are not making an apples to apples comparison of exactly what you bought in 2016 vs what you see on the net or at store. Double check what you bought vs what you are now looking at! Suspect it is not the same product or quantity.

Does home depot offer this in a 2 in x 3 in x 8 ft size (vs. 2x4)? Most of the panels (prefabrica...

I expected higher quality with fewer splits and knots. Several pieces had large splits and a few had knots so large that it compromised the strength.

Must be the rejects that they package like this. Of the 4 boards I received, 2 were very badly warped, 1 was splintered almost half way through, 1 had a knot hole in the center big enough for me to stick 2 fingers through, and 3 had at least 1 corner missing several feet

We bought the Red Cedar to build garden boxes. Very happy with the purchase. Be aware that depending on your application you should expect some of the wood to be split. We bought the product twice. First time was 4 packs (16 boards), the second was one pack. Split boards in both purchases. I didn't mind. I follow a 20% waste rule which seems to hold reliably with other unrelated purchases (unless you're able to hand select).
