Rustic mill-run” lumber is appropriately named; it comes straight from the mill without any sorting or grading. It may contain defects such as knots, sapwood, and cracks, which have to be cut out in order to use the lumber in your project. As such, when planning a project with mill-run lumber, you should account for a 10–15% waste factor to make sure you have enough material to complete your project.
