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.

First time purchaser
Review by  Greg from Virginia
The pack arrived basically as described: 6 4' boards of uniform width (not random) just under 6 inches. The color and grain is generally good, but varied. Only two are similar enough to use to create a wider board. Few insect bore holes, but strategically placed to limit the usable width/length on two boards. Free shipping increased the board foot price to nearly $5 more than their non-packaged lumber. All things considered, the selection is fair to have on-hand for some future project, but expensive. None were "stand out" pieces I would have selected if browsing in-person. YMMV.

Great selection
Review by  Terry from Huntington Beach, CA
The boards in this Project Pack are great. The coloring is similar in all boards and there is a very useful selection of grain patterns throughout, even some nicely ribbon striped boards. The boards are all in great shape with only a very limited amount of defects. Milling these boards to final length and width for my projects will be minimal. I couldn't be happier with the selection. Great job!

Excellent selection of genuine mahogany
Review by  Derek from Louisiana
I'm very happy with my order - the quality of the wood, the way it was selected, prepared & packaged. Plus the delivery time was reasonable given the restriction situations. This is my 5th order from Woodworkerssource.com & I definitely plan on placing many more orders. Thanks guys.
