ARKANSAS PLUMBING AND SUPPLY COMPANY North Franklin St. Phone 2731 • • 0 KNOW YOUR LUMBER GRADES AND SAVE MONEY! Neophyte handymen and do-it-yourself ar« usually dismayed and confounded by lumberyard jargon, and end up buying the wrong lumber for the job they have in mirtd. More often than not, they selcet higher-priced lumber than they need. Lumber is graded acording to quality and classified as common or select. To buy select lumber when common will do is to throw away money, and it may amount to several dollars If any sizeable quantity is purchased. For Instance, if you were to build shelves for tha kitchen, and planned to paint them, it would be foolish to buy top-grade finishing wood •for the job. Lower-grade wood, with sound knots and minor defects, will serve the purpose just as well when painted. A slightly better grade of lumber may be required if a clear finish is to be applied. Lumber clear on one side and imperfect on the other will do nicely In some cases. A good idea Is to pick through the lumber carefully. It's often possible to save money by buying a quantity of low-grade lumber, then use only the clear portions between imperfections. Don't hesitate to consult your.lumber dealer. TeTII him how you plan to use the wood. He will be glad to save you money, because he knows then you'll be back with more business. And retail lumber dealers are relying more and more on the "do-it-yourself" trade. Select woods are graded A, B, C and D. A and B softwoods, the two highest grades, are known in lumberyard parlance as B & Better, of 1 A 2 Clear. In hardwoods they may be called FAS (firsts and seconds) or Is & 2s. In general, the higher select grades are for natural finishes and the lower, C and D, for paint finishes. But there are exceptions for this. Even occasional top-grade common woods can be found good enough to take a natural finish. Common grades are usually designated by numbers — 1 through 5, the latter being the lowest grade. They are for general utility and construction purposes. B 4 Better select grading permits minute) pitch pockets, slight splits, small knots and oth- »r minor irregularities. It is for highest-quality woodwork, trim and cabinetwork. Stain and additional small defects are allowed on C-grade select lumber, next lowest in price and quality. It is less likely to merit * transparent finish. The D grade may have additional defects. Including small knots, rough edges, planer skip, etc. It is popular for use on projects in power- fool-equipped workshops. Common grades follow much the same pat- Fern. Numbers 1 and 2 are good, all-around utility woods. Defects get progressively greater through the other grades. Number 5 has the most imperfections, and it's unlikely that the home handyman would find much use for it. Save Money! It's A Worthwhile Hobby! DO IT YOURSELF!
