Janet Paik added this to Meet the Studs
SizingIf you go to a home center or lumberyard, you'll see stacks of lumber organized by size. The boards will be light in color, milled from spruce, pine or fir — fast-growing coniferous trees.The most common boards will be either "one-by" or "two-by," as in a 2-by-4. Though the designation "2-by-4" refers to the size of the stud in inches, it is not the finished size that you are buying, but the theoretical size of the board before it was dried and put through a planer to smooth it out. After those processes, a 2- by 4-inch stick ends up being 1½ by 3½ inches.
