Stick to redwood rather than white (spruce). It's a bit more expensive but much easier to work. The end product will be better. Select it yourself if you can, not that there's much chance of that now. If you choose to go cheap and use CLS be aware the that corners are all rounded which makes some working (and all marking out) difficult. make yourself a cutting list and order a bit extra - you can mark out all the pieces to avoid damaged parts, bad knots and splits. See what lengths the merchant keeps - they'll be 3.1m, 3.8m, 4.8m or whatever - you can work out what comes out of what (within reason).
