The actual footage you're going to receive is most likely going to change slightly from what you order. This is because we'll be hand selecting your lumber from inventory of various widths and lengths. Usually the change is just a small percentage.

Good but could have been better
Review by  Spyman from Lexington KY
Received the wood pretty fast but issues with tracking it via the web site wasn't updated. Received more wood than I ordered but was not planned on one edge as requested but they added more wood to offset cost okay unless you don't have a planner. Quality of the wood. fair of the wood was cupped would have thought with someone hand picking it out would have been better.

Review by  Stephen Wegner from Yuma, AZ US
I ordered this woo because the add stated they had a 4" to 10" variety of boards. Since I could use several different sizes I didn't request any certain size. I expected to receive a variety of sizes but instead I received 17 boards all under 5" Make sure you state exactly the size you want or you will get what they want to get rid of first. I wrote and complained but I never even got a reply. So much for 100% guarantee.
