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. Decide how much board footage you need
  2. Factor in enough to work with! You'll want to arrange grain patterns, sort color, fix mistakes, run test cuts, make finish samples, etc.
  3. Lumber comes in random widths and lengths. If you need special size considerations, please let us know by using the "Minimum Size Request" box in the order form or by confirming your needs by phone or email.
  4. Expect your final amount of footage to change slightly. Buying by the board foot is an exercise in estimation, therefore we don't know the precise amount of footage you'll receive (and be billed for) until we physically select the wood for your order.
  5. We want to get your order right! So we may need to contact you for clarification. Please use a good phone and email during checkout.

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.

Granadillo 4/4 Lumber- 1st Class Species
Review by  Wyowoodsmith from Hulett, Wyo
I have been planning an "Heirloom Quality" Custom Woodwork project for myself (I normally can't do this with the "Plate as Full "as I have)-I always have Complete confidence in the folks at WWS to ensure I receive Top Quality materials (no matter what I request)- As always - the order was promptly filled, Very well packaged top quality 22 bf. of some of the Best Granadillo I have ever received , I requested 8" width , 84" long - all 4 pieces were more in width and better than any I could find within 400 miles of the "Backwoods in the Black Hills" shop I have in extreme N.E. Wyoming (I have 40 bf. in stock already) but I wanted to use select matching grain for the main visual points. I want to combine some VERY nice Bloodwood, Bubinga and accents of Canary Wood with the main species of view to be Cocobolo (Granadillo). The five objects are to include a Full size Headboard, Footboard- Matching side tables and a Foot Chest . All four boards were perfectly flat, straight and tight grain. As I said this project is for myself, with 35+ years of Heirloom Quality furniture experience (wood and hand forged wrought iron) this will be one that I hope my grandchildren's children will enjoy after I'm building "Harps" in the next life- Thanks to the First Class selections of differant species from WWS- I'll rest very nicely now (and later)

Granadillo 4/4 lumber
Review by  Wyowoodsmith from Hulett, Wyo
Granadillo is one of favorite hardwoods to work with, this last order was first class, very clear grained, tightly formed color. Every piece was flat, smooth and no unuseable edges or ends.It will smooth out with little grain filler to be as slick as glass. Thanks again WWS for keeping Top Quality lumber shiping my way
