About Lumber Sizes & Shipping Length Restrictions

Spanish Cedar lumber comes in random sizes. Here's what you can expect.

4" to 8" Widths

Price shown is for a random selection of widths within this range. You can request specific widths or add a straight edge rip in the order form.

2' to 6' Lengths

This is the range of lengths that we might have in stock. The length you receive depends on how much you order.

Length Shipping Restrictions
84" (7') long max
We always try to ship the longest lengths possible.
8' to 12' long is possible
8' and longer can be shipped truck freight, but this method is usually economical only for shipments that are at least 450 lbs (approx 100-150 board feet depending on the wood).

1/4" Thickness

Also known as 1/4". Surfaced 2 sides (S2S) from rough sawn lumber. You should be able to 1/4" actual thickness. May still require you to flatten, plane, shape or sand your project parts to fit your project..

map of where Spanish Cedar tree grows
Spanish Cedar is an exotic wood from Latin America

Straight-grained, wavy, curly and mottled grain. Soft with a moderately coarse texture. Easy on tools and cutters, but the low density and softness make it prone to splintering. Resembles mahogany at first glance. Milled Spanish cedar also contains an uncontrollable resin that seeps onto the surface.

Lumber 101: What to Know About Hardwood Lumber

lumber random widths Random Widths
You will cut and/or glue to create the sizes you need
rough sawn vs surfaced lumber Surfaced Smooth S2S
We buy rough sawn lumber and have it surfaced 2 sides (S2S) so you're ready to work
rough sawn vs surfaced lumber Kiln Dried
We stock kiln dried lumber and store it in a protected warehouse
rough sawn vs surfaced lumber 83%+ Clear
Unless stated otherwise, we stock Select & Better graded lumber that's at least 83% clear one side
  1. Pick a wood you like
  2. Decide how much you need
  3. Give us your specs (if you have any)

This is the unit of measurement for hardwood lumber when it's bought/sold in random widths and random lengths.

Board footage is a measurement of volume, and it's abbreviated Bd. Ft.

One board foot is equal to 144 cubic inches.

board foot formula

It's a fraction that refers to rough (RGH) sawn thickness of lumber, and it tells you approximately how many quarters of an inch make up the thickness.

Surfaced lumber is thinner because it started out as rough sawn but it's been planed smooth. Planing removes thickness.

Rough Sawn (RGH) Surfaced (S2S)
4/4 ~1" 13/16"
5/4 ~1-1/4" 1-1/16"
6/4 ~1-1/2" 1-5/16"
8/4 ~2" 1-13/16"
12/4 ~3" 2-13/16"

Unless otherwise specified, our lumber is "Surfaced 2 Sides" or S2S for short.

Check out our blog for the full explanation.

If you can cut your own pieces to size, here's how we can help:

  1. Enter requirements into the order form where it says, "Minimum Size Request"
  2. Tell us what you want to acheive or make
  3. You will receive wood that can yeild what you need. (You will create the final size)
  4. We may need to contact you for clarification

You will cut and/or join your material to create the finished sizes you need. We'll pick out wood that will give you enough to do that. For this reason, the final amount of footage you receive in your order will be slightly different, and your final billed charge will be different.

If you want to only buy pieces of an exact size, that will be sold differently. Please contact us for a custom quote.

Sadly, wood cannot be 100% guaranteed to be clear on both sides all the time. Most of our lumber is graded "Select" and better, which means it's at minimum 83% clear on one side.

Very nice uniform pieces, all pieces were thicker than 1/4" which was a bonus for me (I build cigar humidors).
