map of where Red Grandis tree grows
Red Grandis is an exotic wood from Latin America

While the color is much more pale than genuine mahogany, red grandis is very similar in weight, density, grain structure, and the way it responds to most machining operations. The wood's color does deepen with age turning to a darker red much like mahogany.

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.

Got my moneys worth
The box of boards arrived on time just as you had estimated but the cardboard box was badly damaged on one end. Miraculously the boards were not damaged! Upon further examination I noticed one of the largest boards had a couple of large knots in one end. I didn't expect this for what I paid for the lumber. But with my trusty rule and my weak mind I measured the board feet and it seems you allowed for the unusable portion of the board and I got my 20 bd.ft. of usable lumber and for that I am appreciative. The boards were flat and straight and were otherwise very good quality. I will buy again as soon as I use these up.

Red Grandis 4/4 20 bd. Ft Pack
Good quality as usual. Shipping was uneventful and quick. Very pretty color and good for outdoor furniture. Mimics Mahogany in tooling and finishing. This lot is to repair my Adirondack chairs but I just ordered the mahogany pack for my next project. This company is reliable and picks quality boards to ship. I have ordered 6 times and always satisfied.

First Grandis order
I never saw Red Grandis before so when I ordered it did not know what to expect. My package came in and was in good shape so here we go I started to open the package and there it was Red Grandis, WOW !! What beautiful lumber and the length of each piece is great too. Now I have to figure what craft project to make with this beautiful wood.
