Re: Buying wood from the mill, sizes and selection
Bass Lake Mill is owned by Townsend Lumber in Tillsonburg and they carry about every native species going in all widths and thickness. I find it hard to believe that they only carry 8/4 at Bass Lake. Never been to Bass Lake but I do know that at the Tillsonburg Mill all their lumber is graded and kiln dried. If you are looking for that special board there is a 20% surcharge for sorting.I buy from them and a couple of other places and have never sorted. Very rarely do I come across a board that I can not use . Select and Better is about as you can find in this area. It is a bit more than 1 & 2 common but well worth the extra money. The saving on 1&2 common soon goes out the window when you start cutting around the knots.
