Overheard on the Jobsite

"Nope, send all these beams back to the lumberyard and send us good ones. FOHC only."

FOHC = Free Of Heart Center; meaning the beams should not contain the very center of the tree, because this will likely cause a lot of twisting wood movement with time and changes in moisture.
