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.

Great customer service

I placed my very first order with KJP last week for some 4/4 rough birdseye maple, ziricote and leopard wood. When the pieces arrived I was less than impressed with the quality of the wood that showed up. Several pieces had serious flaws in them and the birdseye maple lacked any real quantity of birdseyes in it. I contact KJP to let them know and they immediately remedied the situation. That same day replacement boards were sent out with an apology and the boards that showed up the following day were excellent quality. It's rare to get this level of customer service these days and I have zero hesitation about ordering more lumber from them again. Great company.

Roasted bird’s eye maple

The wood is stunning! I have ordered this wood from KJP one other time and my projects came out beautifully, which lead me to my second order. I finished my pieces with Danish oil, and the wood lit up a gorgeous warm orange-ish color.
