Cut and dried


When something is simple or easy to explain, we say it's "cut and dried." For this expression, we are once again indebted to the lumber trade.

 Wood, among lumbermen, is not lumber until it has gone through two processes.  First it is "cut"; after cutting it is "dried." Only then is it lumber, ready for sale and use.
