Beginners Guide to Buying and Preparing Timber

In answer to one of the questions I've been asked, here's a Guide to buying Timber and preparing it for woodworking, carpentry and joinery.

It's written for a beginner like I was but it covers everthing that confused me at the time.

What's redwood U/S?
How to buy the right wood for the job?
How long do I acclimatise it for?

If you're starting out on a project like making your own windows it could well be worth reading.

How to, Beginners Guide to Buying and Preparing Timber

Hope its useful.

Thanks for sharing these pointers.
I liked the way the information is broken up into the different elements of wood selection and forms of carpentry to make it easier for the reader to understand and follow.

Thanks FourED, I try to make its easy enough so even I can follow it.

Excellent information for any novice looking at timber selection for windows. Just going into your local timber yard to pick up the nearest available timber simply will not do!
