      Q:Can you use these to build a toy box? Is it the right size, sturdiness, etc?

      Answer This Question

      A:  It has a very rough finish. I would be worried about splinters.

      by|Apr 1, 2021

      A:  Norrada, We have seen a number of toy boxes built from fence pickets. These should do just fine for making a basic toy box. The wood is a bit thin, but the ease of using wood that is pre-cut is that there will be less overall cutting involved. If you choose not to use the pickets, we would recommend 3/4 in. plywood instead.

        Answer This Question

        A:  It has a very rough finish. As long as people don't touch them it would work. not sure about chemicals, it looks and smells like raw cedar.

        by|Apr 1, 2021

        A:  Hello Sauna, This wood is not treated, so it will be fine for siding, but we suggest sanding it a bit as it is rough and would not be appropriate for bare feet or skin against it without a bit of smoothing. After that, it's sauna time.

          The boards were delivered in a timely manner and were in good shape. The width and length were as advertised, but the actual thickness was 9/16" as opposed to the advertised 5/8". One board split longitudinally on me, so I had to resort to drilling a pilot hole which solved the problem. The wood is attractive but not particularly robust. I used the wood to create a pair of shutters. I'm pleased with the result.

          not impressed
          Boards and packaging were wet on arrival. Very rough texture, plenty of knots, and some incomlete boards. Material has 1/4” variance on width and 1/8 on thickness between peices. Was gonna make farm house shutters. Now i have to sort by width rip down on table saw and break out the sander. It will work but More work then necessary.

            It was an efficient product for building a horizontal panel fence with panels that varied somewhat is width. I used it for the middle size slants, the top and eleventh boards.

            Thin pickets, doesn't even match description
            They sent boards that aren't even the nominal 1" width, it was 1/2" than the 5/8" that's supposed to be the size. The boards weren't the flat top either, it was the spade picks and they were also very rough and splintery. Wasted 2 weeks waiting for this and now I have to return this to the store.

              We cut the boards into smaller pieces to make an edging for our flower beds. Did not want a uniform look. These came out perfect. Love how they are a little different in color.

              I purchased this online and here are the pics. I may have received a wrong product because it is definitely not 1 inch thick. The pic indicated 2 boards stack on top of each other came out at 1". And there were a lot of damaged pieces. It is not smooth as the pic indicated. This is an update with pics.

                Mostly good, definitely rough
                The wood was mostly solid with 1 out of 13 slats having large issues. The edges are rough, and the surfaces are very rough. Even for a fence it probably needs sanding. Still, with work it is probably 12 good slats (out of 13) of 3 1/4" width and 1/2" thickness. Note that the wood arrived very wet so you probably want to let it dry if your building anything (planter, etc.) with it
