I've been scouting around for some decent Douglas fir for the mast of
my June Bug. I finally found some 2x4's that looked o.k., no.1 Douglas
fir. But it turns out the wood I was looking at was a special order
for someone else and the lumber yard (Lumberjack) doesn't stock no. 1
df normally. I don't want to special order the wood since I want to
inspect it before I commit to buying it. The yard did have some decent
looking redwood that was reasonably clear. Has anyone on the list ever
built a small mast of redwood?
