Chris, great beginner's guide!  I'm glad to see people willing to spend time 
helping others figure out the game.  To answer your question, lumber that is 
sent to the saw mill is only reserved for making barrels.  The easiest way to 
prevent this from happening, is to simply close the building using the 
backspace key.  This will let peasants know, that you don't want supplies being 
taken there.  The draw back, is that they also will not carry logs there, but 
sometimes this is acceptable while you wait for the right amount of free lumber 
to make it to some construction site.
