Use this calculator to help you estimate how much board footage you'd like to buy. Remember, if you're calculating based on a required finished size you'll also need to estimate some extra so you have enough to work with to achieve your desired size.
You'll have to cut your own pieces to size. Hardwood lumber is sold as a bulk raw product, which means that our stacks of lumber have a big variety of sizes most often from 4" up to 12" wide, and 6' to 16' long.
Only some unusual exotic woods are narrower than 4" and under 6' long. This is clearly stated when that's the case, everything else is larger.
We always ship the longest boards possible, and rarely ship boards less than 48" long unless you request shorter. The longest we can ship by UPS is 96" (that's 8').
For general fine woodworking, the various widths and lengths meet the needs and desires of woodworkers building furniture, cabinetry, and fine woodwork. But we do understand that certain projects have some requirements, and we're happy to help you out.
Here's how we can help you get the sizes you need:
We can hand-select material that will yield what you need. Type your needs into the "Selection Request" field right above the Add to Cart button above when you place your order. 4 things to know about size requests

HWolfe review of recent order, 12.5.2011
Reviewer: Harvey Wolfe (Monroeville, PA)
I ordered Canary Wood, Satinwood Brazil, and Bloodwood. The 8/4 canary wood was exceptional. I have already used some to make tapered legs and it was beautiful and wonderful to work with. The 4/4 canary wood and yellowheart were all that I expected. The bloodwood, I would rate fair. The shortest piece (only 36")was very warped. The other two pieces were a little warped, but OK. Since I need a couple of very small pieces for the center of a table design, I have been able to use the warped piece in six inch cuts. Incidentally, the bloodwood was also barely 3/4", too thin to plane it to get rid of the warping. I will probable use the jointer to plane it level, but it won't be any thicker than 1/2". Overall I was pleased with the order. The legs of my table are gorgeous.

No obvious defects. It had a slight bow to it but that can't be criticized coming from AZ to such a humid state as LA. The only issue I had was one end has a very thick coat of some sticky substance. I didn't like it but it's not hurting because I have to mill it down a bit more anyway.
