S4S Bolivian Rosewood Lumber - Thick

This exotic wood from South America has many names; Morado, Pau Ferro, Bolivian Rosewood, or Santos Rosewood!

The closest wood species we carry to Rosewood is this Pau Ferro. A close match in colour, apperance, and even it's working properties - it's not surprise it often called Santos or Bolivian Rosewood.

It is most often used by luthiers or instrument makers but can also be used for flooring or cabinetry. 

If you would like to do the milling yourself - try our 8/4 Rough Cut Bolivian Rosewood 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.
