Rough Vs Soft Wood

Generally lumber is wood that belongs to any stage from the moment it is cut from a tree until it is used in a building construction or making of furniture or even paper. Once a tree is felled and lumber is cut, it is shipped to warehouse mostly in a ‘rough’ form. In case there is enough space and manpower available at the felling site lumber may be transported as ‘semi-finished’ piece. Almost all finished lumber is cut to standard sizes that are on demand in the market. Lumber Galveston is primarily used in the building and construction industry. Most finished lumber is generally cut from felled trees such as pine and cedar. They are also considered as soft wood. This grade of wood is not suitable for use as floors. You need to use hard woods obtained from rough lumber and these generally are high grade wood. Rough lumber is what we have as soon as a tree is felled and they will also have the bark still attached. It is raw and uncut and therefore not available in standardized measurements. Mostly rough lumber is from fully grown oak trees, which is used for purposes where custom cutting or shaping is required. In the United States generally standard lengths of lumber are 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12, and so on up to 24 feet. You also have precut sizes that are more commonly used and studs in different sizes such as 92 5/8 inches and 116 5/8 inches and so on. For more information about Lumber Galveston – Visit here
