1 in. x 12 in. x 4 ft. Common Board

Pound for pound, Douglas Fir is one of the strongest western soft woods. This wood s used in the manufacturing of more products than any other lumber species. This strong, reliable, and workable wood s perfect for use in flooring and has been used for many years. The product is easy to glue and has good nail and screw holding properties. The paint retention properties are good and it is fairly easily treated with preservatives.

As the other reviewer said, this is not high-quality, uniform lumber, but it met my needs at a good price. I needed one board for a laundry-room shelf, so it didn't matter if the size was perfect. I had to go through about five boards before I found one that wasn't bowed, but the one I got was fine for my purposes. I would not recommend buying on-line and letting the store pick them for you.

No, I do not recommend this product.
I bought 17 of these to make some quick and dirty 2-shelf bookcases with minimal cutting. You know, finish nail them together, tack on a luan backing, sand and stain. Easy-peasy. No can do. Hardly any two were the same length and some were different widths. I realize that this is cheap wood and I was not expecting cabinetry type tolerances, but some of these were nearly 1/2 inch longer than others and nearly a 1/4 inch wider. Don't get me started on squareness. It's no great skill to set up a jig to crosscut boards within reasonable tolerances. I'd dump the manufacturer of this junk.
Cons: poorly cut

No, I do not recommend this product.
I had to go thru 3 stacks of approx 25 - 30 pieces per stack to find 6 decent boards. Most were warped, cracked or damaged. They were advertised as 1x12x4 yet measured out 3/4 x 11 1/4 x 4. Well, some were 4ft. I gave it 1 star because I was forced to in order to write a review. Otherwise it would get 0 stars.
