Rough Cut Lumber Stacks by Rail Scale Models

This item represents a stack of rough-cut lumber. Typically, rough-cut lumber comes from a sawmill and is ready to be dried in a kiln. Pieces of lumber have yet to be cut to size or graded, so you'll see a stack of similar thickness but variable widths and lengths. This kit includes two (2) sheets approximately 10.5" long x 4.5" wide on 3/64" basswood - simulating ~3" wide lumber at ~12' (also available at ~10') lengths. It includes enough material to create two (2) four foot (4') tall lumber stacks.

Be sure to check out the rest of their web site, as the company has a lot of interesting details available in S.
