Lumber yard question boards are too long...
I need 7 foot boards for my project. I called the lumber yard and I asked if they had 75bdf of 8/4 stock. They said they did. I asked if they were 8' boards... He said they are 8, 9, 10' long.
8' ok 9' getting iffy but 10' boards thats just too much wasted money for unusable board.
The question is, is it ok to ask them to cut a 10' to 8' so I'm not wasting money on 4 bdf that isn't usable to me?
My project calls for 65bdf but I figured buying 75 due to waste.
