Lumber and timber are rectangular commodities sawn from logs. Lum-
ber may be dressed (smooth planed) or rough (unplaned). Lumber is
less than 2" in nominal thickness and may be called boards or strips.
Dimension lumber is from 2" up to, but not including, 5" thick and may
be called stringers, posts, girders, beams, etc. Plywood is a composite
panel or board made up of cross-banded layers of veneer, or veneer and
a core of either lumber or particle board, bonded with adhesive. These
products can be used in contact with fresh water and soil. Also, these
products may be used in waterfront structures if they do not come in con-
tact with salt water or salt water splash.
