North American Standard 2-by Lumber

Nominal Size (inches) | Actual Size (inches) | Actual Size (mm) |
---|---|---|

2 x 2 | 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 | 38 x 38 |

2 x 3 | 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 | 38 x 64 |

2 x 4 | 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 | 38 x 89 |

2 x 6 | 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 | 38 x 140 |

Similarly, what is the length of a 2x6?

Actually, the nominal **size** is often never the actual **size**. 1x4 are 3/4″ x 3–1/2″, 2x4 are 1–1/2″ x 3–1/2″. Again, **2x6** are 1–1/2″ x 5–1/2″.

Secondly, how much does a 2x6 cost? Lumber Prices: Estimating the Cost of Dimensional Lumber

Accordingly, how long is a 2x6x8?

Standard pre-cut wall studs are: 92 5/8" for 8' walls, 104 5/8" for 9' walls, 116 5/8" for 10' walls.
