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.

I ordered 20bf of 8/4 QSWO. The quality of lumber they shipped was fantastic. The boards were clear and straight-grained. The S3S surfacing was excellent. The shipping was fast, the packaging was exceptional, and the customer service was outstanding. This was an all around great purchase and I would highly recommend Woodworkers Source for mail-order lumber.
Nice and Hefty

I couldn't get 6/4 so as long as it was on sale I opted for. The 8/4 thickness. The extra thickness allowed me to improvise on the plan and make my project beefier. The wood was nice and straight and flat with some very nice grain patterns which is what you expect when purchasing Quarter Sawn White Oak. I used this wood for a park bench I am making for the community. They wanted a good outdoor wood that would stand up to public use.

I have been purchasing the QSWO for the last several years- both on line and a few trips to the Phoenix warehouse. Its a real treat to pick through the stacks; but, have always been pleased with the shipped orders. I would recommend the QSWO to any level woodworker. I primarily build frames and shadow boxes; but have done several table slabs for mission style round tables. Getting ready to try my hand at bathroom cabinets. Got a special on "irregular" 1/2" plywood which was qs on one side at the warehouse,. Neat !
