Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

Not what I am looking for!
I use both the basswood and white/clear pine in making plank on frame wood ship models. The white pine I received from my first Woodcraft order was superiod (great wood to work with). My second order contained heavily grained pine, which is not useful in model buidling. This recent order also contained heavy grained pine. When I order I have no option to only order the white/clear pine. It seems I get what's in stock. This is not workable. I need to find a reliable source of white pine where I know I will receive white pine in each order.
