How do you sell your lumber?

The common way we sell wood is by the board foot. These pieces are S2S (surfaced two sides on the widest faces). The live edge pieces, pen blanks, turning and carving blocks are sold by the piece. We also have some linear footage S4S (surfaced four sides) of Douglas fir and clear pine. If you do not wish to purchase a full piece of lumber we have minimum length requirements that may require an additional cut charge of $5.

What is a board foot?

A board foot is the common way to sell lumber that is random width and length. A board foot is defined as a 12” x 12” x 1” piece of lumber. The easiest way to calculate a board foot is to measure the board in inches. Multiply the three dimensions together and divide by 144. For example: a board 6” wide x 96” long x 1” thick divided by 144 equals 4 board feet.
