We all know hardwood lumber is typically sold in random widths and lengths.  However, If you are not still buying your hardwoods in random widths and lengths, chances are you purchasing it either width sorted or in exact ripped-to-width bundles.  But why would a manufacturer prefer sorted hardwood strips or hardwood rips?

We are often asked why is Poplar in eight foot only lengths so hard to find?  We get this question often from moulding and millwork manufacturers who prefer to receive eight foot board lengths because it works best for their finished products.  For them, longer length boards just become harder to work with and usually end up being shortened as a finished product  leaving an assortment of unusable shorts that just pile up in their inventory.
