    Re: Guys at lumber yard not wanting customer to pick through wood (1x4 & 1x6)

    I had no idea one can find fence boards that are not pressure treated, thanks for that Rusty - I will look into all your other suggestions too !

    Question for you - I never did find out exactly what those common 1x4 and 1x6 are used for in the construction industry, can you enlighten me? I know 2x4 are used for framing, but always thought common 1x4, 1x6 are fence boards - seems I am wrong now, haha

      Another option, if you have the capabilities to resaw and mill, is barnboard/rough cut pine. Once down to 5" or so width they can be resawn on the table saw by flipping it and keeping the same face against the fence. Anything in the middle left over on wider boards is easy with a hand saw or reciprocating saw. A run through the planer and Bob's your uncle! You don't have to cut right down the middle, the thinner side can be used for shutter slats, etc.

        Spruce 1x6 are used to form the footings.
