Clear Utility Lumber


At Mill Outlet we are always on the lookout for great value. Utility clears in Douglas Fir, Western  Red Cedar and Alaska Yellow Cedar are perhaps some of the best examples of this to be found. While perfection can be very costly you can achieve it for as little as 1/2 price with a little imagination, work and our utility clear offering. Much of this wood is the perfect vertical grain lumber people are looking for, for trim and special projects, but because the knots have not been cut out or a minor defect here and there we can offer it for much less than you would be forced to pay elsewhere. Our current offering includes 1×2, 1×3, 1×4 and 1×6 in rough clear, and 1×4, 1×6, 1×8, 1×10. 5/4×4 in Dry vertical grain Clear. We also have some 4×4, 6×6 and lots of 2×2 in 32″, 36″, 48″, 8′, 10′, and 12′ lengths. If you are looking for paneling we have 1/2×4 tongue and groove in a couple of different profiles, with 1000’s of feet available most of the time. Douglas Fir too, 1×6 kiln dried E grade if you will, perfect vertical grain between occasional knots or pitch pockets, this wood will cost up to 6 times as much if you get it from someone who has taken time to cut between the defects. These are the types of value Mill outlet brings to you if you are paying attention and you are willing to roll up you sleeves and put your mind to work.Image
