S4S Yellow Birch Lumber - Thick

There really isn’t much that you can’t do with Yellow Birch!

Yellow Birch is a great species to use as a secondary wood for hidden furniture components and drawer sides. It is also one of the most widely used species for veneer and plywood. What colour is birch? The sapwood is a creamy white colour while the heartwood is a light red/brown. You will occasionally see a beautiful lazy curl in this wood, often referred to as flame. Where do birch trees grow? This popular wood species is found all across Northeastern North America.

If you would like to do the milling yourself - try our 8/4 Rough Cut Yellow Birch Lumber for a more budget friendly version.

S4S Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who aren’t equipped with the necessary tools to flatten and straighten boards.

The term "surfaced" or "dressed" refers to a piece of wood that has been milled. To achieve the necessary dimensions, we select a larger board to work from. Both faces and edges are then surfaced so you can be assured that the board is flat and straight. These boards are available in specific sizes.

For example: 3/4” x 5-1/4” x 24”

Rough Cut Lumber

Who are they for? These are ideal for those who enjoy working with machinery or hand tools to mill their own boards.

We use this term to describe boards that require additional milling. Rough cut lumber have been run through the planer to show the grain however they have not been dressed. You will need to mill both faces and edges. Rough cut lumber are available in specific lengths with varying widths.

For example: 4/4 x (5-6”) x 24”

You will receive a board that is just shy of an inch thick, with a width in the range of 5-6”, and is 24” long.

Lovely, lovely wood

I scroll saw jigsaw puzzles, mainly of animals, so was impressed with the fantastic grain on this wood. It made the animals look so much better.
