Re: Specifying Glulam Combinations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Here in Utah, I believe the common stuff is
24F-V8 for cantilevers.

It would be nice if the standard somehow listed the
commonly available material in the different regions
of the country.  Not sure if that is easily done though.
