You basically use lumber when fixing tilled soil or irrigated waterways. You will lose lumber if you want to undo waterways. The lumber shed is to the left of the horse stable, and above your house. A fence of lumber is always two, so if you have 4 amt of lumber, you only have two pieces of fencing.
To get more lumber, cut stumps in your crop field, animal pastures, or the forest. The forest has a infinite amount of stumps. If you chop all the stumps in the forest, and want more, exit and reenter the forest. To get the lumber out of the lumber shed, press (A), while being next to it. To put a piece lumber back, be next to the shed and press (A).
NOTE: You can carry lumber in your sack. Hold up a piece of fence, by pressing (A), then press (B) to put it in. _______ _ | || || | |_|-. |^^^| | || || | | |-| '___' |_______| |_| | | | | | | '-' ___ | | | | | '^^^' |_|_|_|_| |^^^|
