Re: Lumber Loads in 1947, 1952, and 1957 - Changes in Types of Cars


For this…..

I would consider using a solid color wood-tone card-stock sourced from the craft world. 

Print a wood grain on the top boards leaving the basic color alone, and stack the card stock as a hollow cored block with some randomness to the ‘board’ ends to be the stack[s] of lumber.
