For most wood projects, a simple rough estimate will produce a good starting price. If you are looking for detailed information about your projects and your ability to complete them or to compare wood pricing with different brands, I recommend looking through the links below, particularly the pricing calculator provided by WoodWorks. (Note that as of 1 February, 2013, WoodWorks has removed pricing information for many projects from their website.)
It is always beneficial to do your research into pricing before you choose a wood or product manufacturer. In my case, I am considering buying a 2″ x 2″ project from a manufacturer with a price that is lower than most of the competition.
There is also no exact answer to determining the price of wood at your local hardware store. At your local hardware store you will pay less for wood that is cut to size, and you will pay less for wood that is finished. In addition, if you live or work just a few miles out of the store (perhaps closer to the store), your budget may be smaller than what is paid for hardware at the store.
To sum up, you are not likely to find a better pricing solution if you decide to purchase lumber from a store rather than purchase your lumber at home or do research or price estimating at your local lumber store.
Which kind of wood will work best for a project?
There are two main types of wood for making benches, and each provides different characteristics that will work well on different projects.
Redwoods are easy to identify for many woodworking jobs. You will see redwoods and be able to determine their wood species and whether it can be safely used. They are easy to find and usually sell for less than $20 per foot.
You will also run across many redwood trees in the wild. These trees can be found anywhere from the Great Basin and California to the Southeast United States or the Eastern Mediterranean. They can grow up to 200 feet tall and can be found in the forests or open areas of the United States. The main characteristics are that they have a very high density of growth and generally have a light greenish to a bright pink color.
The biggest differences between redwood and beech woods is color and grain structure. Both of them have a similar red to black color, however the beech has a lighter grain structure with more fine grain. Beechs are considered “hardwoods”.
Both the redwood and beech have fairly uniform grain structure. You can tell this even
