              They should be ashamed to sell these like this.
              I NEVER expected these pickets to be the worse quality in a wood product, I have ever seen. I did call and complain and wanted to send pics, but the person said he had no email address for me to send pics. I paid $39 for 13 pickets and I got $10 back. I sanded what I could, but still the worse quality I have ever seen. Every single picket was horrible.

                Hideous. Rough. Going Back. Too Rough to Paint.
                I might not have expected super smooth pickets. But in my wildest worst nightmare I never expected this crap. This is going back to the store. After I waited over a month to receive them. So extremely disappointed.

                  Pick your pickets with care. Lesson learned. Dont buy wet pickets. If they feel heavy, they are wet. I bought these just for the cedar planks to make a custom fence. Custom fence sections would be 6ft wide by 3 ft high at the highest point containing 11 pickets per section. (To add more work, she wanted the pickets "scalloped" on the fence, not straight across.) Pickets were wet so I had to dry them out. First thing I did was rip them into 2.9" wide planks to get the wood ready to build my custom fence. I could feel drops of water on my face as I ripped off one side of the the pickets with my table saw. I stacked them in evenly spaced layers on the leftover wood trims which were 1/4 thick. This gave the pickets air. The top layer of pickets I had to turn twice per day to make sure they dried evenly. I still lost a few because they warped as they dried out. When they finally dried, I was able to put 60 degree points on them, cut to length, and paint them. I re-stacked them to let the paint dry. Fence is looking good but it was a lot of work to save wet pickets.

                    First, it's weird that both the 1" and the 5/8" thick pickets are spec'd as having an actual thickness of .625". I ordered the 1", and they were mostly .625" with a 3/4" or two in there. Second, they're really rough with a high percentage that are chipped/cracked (predictable) but my order also showed up soaking wet, which I couldn't tell (they were inside cardboard boxes, which were just a little damp) so when I opened them a day later, several were already moldy. Really delightful.
