More About Lumber Sizes and Quantity of Lumber

Lumber widths varietyLumber comes in various widths (usually 4" to 12") and lengths (4' to 8')

Lumber comes in various widths and lengths, which is why it may take longer to get your order together, and why you may need to buy more footage than you realize. The stack of mahogany above shows how lumber comes in many widths, rarely uniform.

If you ask for 10 boards 6" wide and 72" long, we won't be sending boards that are precisely 6" wide, and depending on the supply may or may not be exactly 72" long. As a service, we'll find boards that will yield that size so you can cut them to what you need - what we send will be bigger. And therefore the footage you order will need to be adjusted and billed accordingly.

Due the nature of hardwood lumber, each board in a stack is a different size, with different grain characteristics, etc. Our primary concern is providing you with quality material that you like. We want you to be happy and therefore we want to make sure you get what you need so your project can be a successful one.
