I believe it's actually a bit less than 2" x 4" due to "shrinkage".   And not the kind of shrinkage George Costanza faced in another classic Seinfeld episode.

This is all the more reason to demand a discount. We are gettting gypted! For the PC Crowd use 'taken'. I don't mean to denigrate the gypsy real estate agents out there.

1.5 x 3.5 I guess they round up as you say. You don't get what you pay for.

Actaully it is smaller than that. The wood is cut wet if it is thin it is warped... I am having fits with my redwood fence. The fence guy mentioned HD fencing material is not good so he charged me premium and I found he went back to HD. The board will warp 2-3" over 8 ft. You turkey.

1.5 by 3.5. I remember years ago when it was much closeer to the stated 2x4 size.

Depends where you buy it, get some seconds at the mega store and can be from 1 3/4 by 3 3/4 to 1.5 by 3.5 and if your lucky, it does not bow like, well a bow.
