How to Buy Hardwood Lumber

When buying lumber it’s best to understand grading first. And while long, the above video from the American Hardwood Export Council is worth watching to learn grades.

And how you can optimize your hardwood purchase.

For example, if your project doesn’t need FAS grade a #1 common may save on your purchase. But, if you needed FAS it’s not usually worth cutting #1 into an FAS grade with scrap loss.

Overview: Hardwood Lumber in Arkansas

Arkansas has a good selection of hardwood with a handful of full selection retailers, a few sawmills and a great selection of lumber yards. But, unlike some neighboring states, you’ll need to drive a bit further if you’re not near an urban center.
