Hi Gary, HD carries a pine board about 1x4 that is a bit oversized. By very careful selection, I have been able to find some pretty straight boards with minimal knots. When I've really been lucky, I fine pieces with long clear spaces between knots. I've been able to make a few nice frames with this clear stock, just not too large. To get out of big box wood, you must pop for a jointer and planer.
Well said, Tom. The big box stores don’t sell consistentLy dimensioned lumber of any kind, but it certainly more expensive when it comes to hardwoods! A jointer and planer become unavoidable if you want to make any fine pieces. Unless you have a very generous friend with a wood shop...

I find it a challenge to mill down sawmill stock but the options are endless for whatever your project calls for. Wood choices are more plentiful too compared to the big boxes
