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.

good character minimal splits
Review by  John from
One board had beautiful figure and nice knots with only one very small split about 1.5 inches total. One board had no splits at all and was in very good condition. One board had a much larger split, about 6.5 inches total, but I ripped the boards and the split was a non issue. I'm using these boards to replace the cabinet on my Pioneer SX-780. There will be more than enough usable wood for this project with some left over for a nice side table top. I would definitely buy project packs again for future projects.

Sounds like I got a Meh Mix
Review by  Brett from NJ
Checking and through knots that can only be fixed by hiding with epoxy. 2/4 boards were practically unusable in anything other than small crafts. I have high Hopes that future orders will be better.

Awesome quality and great Customer Service!!
Review by  BRYAN from GA
Great quality cuts! I did have an issue with 1 of the boards I received because it developed a fairly significant split. It's wood and these things can happen. I notified Customer Service, along with a picture, and they responded VERY quickly, apologized, and got me a replacement board out ASAP. Very Happy customer. Their great quality wood will keep you coming back, but their excellent Customer Service and wanting to make things right just helps to solidify that you are dealing with a true class act company!
