Rough Cut Lumber Company is a Black Hills business that cuts pine slabs, siding and specialty products for customers in the region. From 4" thick slabs for bar tops, counters, benches, tables to 1x8 planks for siding and other projects. Most lumber is from the beautiful Black Hills Ponderosa Pine that features the beautiful blue tones of the pine beetle. The wood no longer carries any insects or beetles, however the wood does carry a true lasting beauty that isn't available anywhere else other than the Beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. You can visit Rough Cut Lumber Company and see many of the samples and specialty products they carry.
Woodworkers love rough cut lumber for a number of reasons. It is usually sold at a lower cost of finished lumber, and it is available much thicker than finished or manufactured cuts. Many woodworkers and carpenters actually prefer rough cut lumber because it provides more lumber to work with, because it is based on actuall size and not nominal sizes like the lumber yard. Rough Cut Lumber normally when you buy a 2x4 it is 2"x4" minus a little for shrinkage, which gives the skilled woodworker more of a margin for error while saving money at the same time.
Many do it yourselfers and woodworkers are turning to rough cut lumber, as a way to stretch their project dollars and ensure they work with quality.
