When Selects And Better Is Better

It makes sense to buy big, defect-free boards for big, smooth surfaces, such as table- or desktops, plankstyle cabinet sides or perhaps a head- or footboard. A group of Selects and Better boards may have more consistent color and grain patterns. Defect-free boards are less distracting to look at and generally easier to work with. Working with No. 1 Common takes time and patience.

SOME NO. I COMMON ISVERY CLEAR, but simply short or narrow. If a board is under 6-ft. long, or less than 4-in. wide, it won't qualify for a higher grade.
