Need a little help.
I'm ready to make an order at Aircraft Spruce, mostly for wood. I don't want anything pre-cut. I want to do the work. When looking at the website under "spruce kits", they list the items in the wood kits and it appears that it is all pre-cut.

example: capstrip-1/4x1/4 - qty in kit, 600 - qty to order, 600.

However, the catalog description of the kits says that the builder has to rip the boards to dimension as needed. Am I missing something here?

I just want the 1/4" thick boards to rip. Same with the rest of the wood.
