About Lumber Sizes & Shipping Length Restrictions

4" to 10" 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.

6' to 12' 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).

13/16" Thickness

Also known as 4/4, S2S. Surfaced 2 sides (S2S) from rough sawn lumber. You should be able to yield approximately 3/4" thickness after you flatten, plane, shape or sand your project parts to fit your project

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.

Splinters and Chips
The wood is beautiful when finished. However, it is prone to splintering and chipping. Sanding the edges of a project is very challenging. Cutting round-overs on a router table is where I have had the most problems with sever chip out.

Beautiful Red Grandis
Wood was absolutely beautiful and the sizes I ordered were just right. The only issue i had was the box was pretty torn up by the time i got it. I know this is mot woodworkers fault, they took great care of all my orders.

I think I've found my go-to wood
I normally order online, but was in Tucson and stopped in the store to see the exotics on sale. I fell in love with Sapele, but with my budget and beginner skill set I couldn't justify buying enough of it to make an entire large piece of furniture. Then across the aisle I saw the Red Grandis, and I remembered seeing someone who was making very nice furniture with this wood, stained to look like antique Mahogany. It's very consistent in color and grain pattern, with just enough visual interest to not take away from say, a figured door panel or drawer fronts. And it's about half the cost of Mahogany, Sapele, Walnut, etc. Regarding the board I just bought online, I requested 12 bd/ft of 4/4 and they took a 12 ft long, 12" wide, perfectly clear and cut it into 3 48" pieces. Couldn't have asked for anything better. I got more serious about woodworking at the start of Covid, and have bought something from WWS almost every month for the past year. I've never received anything less than great from them, and even though their prices are higher than my few local places I don't really have the urge to go elsewhere. Customer service and quality products are more important to me than a little bit of savings, especially in the long run. You get what you pay for!

Great Eucalytus 4 quarter boards
Excellent quality, beautiful boards. Cut to my requested length dimension. Was sent equal width boards, even though I was expecting varied width. Much better quality and board sizes than I was expecting. These will be a pleasure to work with. Packaged very well and arrived in perfect condition.

Great Grandis
As usual, the wood was beautiful and cut exactly as we had requested. We are always so pleased with the quality of the material you provide and how precisely you comply with our specific requests. The Red Grandis was used to make seat and back boards for an antique park bench. The contrast between the wood and the old cast iron frame made for a magnificent bench. Thank you for offering wood we often can not find locally. We also appreciate your preparing the wood per our requests and the fast shipping.
