I received an email the other day asking a question about a term I used in one of my videos. When I was talking about buying lumber I used the term "four quarter" 4/4. In the industry wood is sold by the board foot and thickness is referred to in quarters. For example a 1 inch board to sold as "four quarter" 4/4. A 1 and 1/2 inch thick board is "six quarter" 6/4.
I was looking around YouTube today and found a nice video produced by the Woodworkers Guild of America that discusses some other valuable terms to know when you visit the lumber yard. Keep in mind that these terms are usually not used when you shop at the big box stores like Home Depot. If you are new to shopping for lumber take a look and you will learn quite a bit.
