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

Very beautiful A-1 quality wood, great timely delivery., 3.26.2013
Reviewer: George Germin (Regina, SK)
The sizes were all very workable with lots of useable widths and lengths.
I have purchased nearly 1,000 board feet of nearly 30 different species from Woodworkers source and I have NEVER been disappointed with even 1 board foot.
Don't be worried Canadian woodworkers, these people know what they are doing with across-the-board shipping. I have received wood delivered to my doorstep cheaper than I can buy for in Regina (shipping included).
Thanks Craig & Robert

Product has a very nice color and a very solid piece. Have not worked with it yet, but I'm sure it will meet my expectations when I do. Was packaged very well for shipping with no dings or dents upon arrival. Thanks.
