Overpriced and poor quality
Local store listed as having over 300 boards; only a dozen were out and they were all warped and poor quality. Price was much higher than listed, and a better quality 2x4 could be purchased at an equivalent price.

      There are huge cracks in the 2x2s. That's what I get for not picking out my own lumber.

      They were closer to 1.5” x 1.5”. I had to adjust my schematic to account for the difference.

      I was able to use nearly 100% of the wood despite having the normal bad areas on some of the 8' pieces. The person fulfilling my order did a fair job ensuring that I didn't end up with a lot of bad boards. If I have a criticism it is a general one. The online experience was a nightmare mostly due to a poorly designed website that shifts items to another store if the the needed item isn't in stock. Bad policy to do this automatically. The 2X2s were intially ordered from the Eastside (Rojas) store in El Paso but were sent to the Westside store. I cancelled the entire order and started over again. That is more of an observation. I tried the online ordering but probably won't do it again. I really suggest that you disable the auto feature that splits orders between stores, I can't imagine anyone likes that. Dr. Cal Harris

      Some were planed with rounded corners, some were not with squared corners and were obviously bigger than the planed ones. Some were just punky, and some warped terribly. I went back for 4 more to be able to finish my project because of the poor quality.

      I don't believe the 2x2's I received were directly from the fabricator. They may have been cut at the store. I had to return about 1/3 of them because they were unusable. I went with 2x3 which are excellent.

      I purchased 4 on a curbside delivery, so didn't select them myself. Of those, 2 were fine, one looked like it was pulled out of the cull pile because was warped about 3-4" out of straight. The 4th one was so bad, it was not worthy for firewood......it was warped and twisted in about 3 different angles. It's beyond belief that Home Depot would allow something this bad to leave their store, much less sell it.
