Details in our blog: "What Does 4/4 Mean in Lumber?"
4" to 6" Widths
This is the range of widths that are usually available in this wood.
  • Price shown is for a random selection of widths within this range.
  • Request special width selection using the "Minimum Size Request" box in the order form.
  • Edges are rough sawn
  • Straight edge ripping service is available for a small fee
6' to 14' Lengths
This is the range of lengths that we might have in stock at any given time. But there are some things to know:
Some Shipping Restrictions:
  1. If you order 10 bd. ft. or less, your lumber will be cut to be shorter than 45" for shipping purposes. Request different lengths using the "Minimum Size Request" box on the order form
  2. 8' is the longest length we can reasonably ship by UPS & FedEx
  3. Longer lengths can be shipped truck freight instead; Please contact us to get a custom shipping quote if you need lengths longer than 8'
No Minimum Purchase
We're easy to buy from! That means we can cut you a short piece(s) from long boards if you want.

The actual footage you're going to receive is most likely going to change slightly from what you order. This is because we'll be hand selecting your lumber from inventory of various widths and lengths. Usually the change is just a small percentage.

My first time to order with woodwoekerssource.com, and at first I was a bit uncomfortable, due to orders with other companies. After placing and receiving this order, I will be doing more. Pricing was great, I wanted 20 board feet, not a problem, shipping was very quick, and packaged to be damage free. Very pleased, definitely five stars.!! They also follow thru with email updates.

I had drawn up the tables for my "personal" project, the material list included an extra 3bf. of knotty alder, the shipment had included 4, 24" pcs, this would have been alright, but all 24" pcs had split's half way, I contacted WWS and Kirk immediately ask what could he do to complete my project, the other 4 bf. was shipped the next day- nothing but first class customer service, this woodworker won't order from any other supplier, every order has been much better than any that could be found within 400+ miles- thanks very much guys, pictures to follow when the finish is applied

The lumber recieved was of better quality than I expected. Packaging was excellent and wood was straight and none cupped. I can't get this type in Pa. so I had to order online and was hesitant. I will have no worries ordering again.
