Remember that you will nearly always incur a minimum waste of 35% in top grades. Few species are less, several are more. We can guide you in this matter at the time of your order. To avoid unnecessary waste, state the quantity and finished sizes of the pieces that you wish to make. We will select lumber that will cut up as economically as possible, within the practical limits of sorting. You are always welcome to come in and select your own material if this is convenient.
