Studs have the strength and stiffness values that make them suitable for use in load bearing walls. STD&BTR can also be used in general construction, but of often of higher quality combining the grades of A and B. A and B grades are defined as A: No knots, splits, or other visible defects. Used for fine furniture, exposed cabinetry, trim, and flooring; and B: A few, small defects but nearly perfect. Used for fine furniture, exposed cabinetry, trim, and flooring.

How can you find the wall stud without a stud finder?

Answer By putting your ear to the wall : A wall is a collection of studs (usually sized 2x4 or 2x6) equally spaced (usually 16 in. or 24 in. on center) and sandwiched between top and bottom plates. : If you start from the corner, you can measure 16" or 24" and hope that you find a stud. You can hit the wall, and where it sounds more hallow, no stud exists where the sound is higher, there is a stud. But if you can't tell a difference, then measuring could be your only bet.
