I spent a long time picking through knotty, barky and damaged "select" pine at Home Depot before finding enough clear boards for baseboards in my master bedroom. I cut and installed two before I discovered every single board is a different width. The first one was close to 7 3/8, the second one is 7" even (they don't line up very well), the next 7 1/8, the next 7 1/16, the next 7 1/4, etc. Obviously they can't be used unless I pull down the one I installed and rip every board to 7". HD is already closed so I can't exchange them, not that they would let me return cut boards. I seem to have flushed $200 and a Sunday afternoon down the drain.
