When I pick up a board and it's got a sticker on it indicating it's 1/4" x 2" x 4', I assume it's a quarter inch thick by two inches wide and four feet long. Well, we all know what happens when we assume. These boards are only 1.5" wide!
I didn't realize this until I got a whole bunch of 'em home, cut a few of them to length and primed them. They seemed a bit narrow, and I measured them. Just over 1.5". I then looked up the specs online, having bought them in the store, and saw that the "nominal" and "actual" widths are different. For no good reason. If a board is 1.5" wide, then say so!
Aside from being too narrow for my purpose, the boards themselves are straight and smooth, and cut easily. They aren't too soft. The sticker doesn't come off in one piece, and leaves glue residue behind.
So if you need a board that is a quarter inch by an inch and a half, these will do. If you need a 2 inch board, keep on looking.
Pros: High Quality of Material
Cons: not the stated width, sticker leaves glue residue

Perfect for Trim Moulding on Cabinet Doors

I needed uniform, knotless lumber for trim moulding on our old plywood cabinet doors. This lumber was perfect. It is uniform and knotless. Out of 24 I did have two with knots but I could still use the length beyond the knot. After tacking to the edges of a door I tacked 1/4 in. moulding on the inside edge for a nice low profile look on flat doors.
Pros: Multi Use, High Quality of Material, Good Shape
