I've only completed one project, and I'm curious if it was just a bad day at orange or if I should expect this every time I purchase boards. I had to go through A LOT of 1x6 boards in order to find 3 that even resembled straight. And using furring strips for 1x2s??!!! Impossible!! Couldn't find even one that was remotely straight. I even opened a new bundle thinking that might help. Nope.
Is it better to go to an actual lumber yard? Or maybe this is just part of the building process?
Just wondering about other's experience in this area. If I know that this is just normal, it makes it less frustrating!
