4/4 Rough Cut Yellowheart Lumber

Yellowheart is one of the few hardwoods that doesn’t lose the colour vibrancy that you see after aging.

What is Yellowheart? It is actually Portuguese for ‘yellow wood’ and is a beautiful wood from Brazil. Also known as Pau Amarello, this wood works well with both hand and power tools though areas of interlocked grain or figure can pose challenges. It can have a moderate dulling effect on tools and has an odour that is an acquired taste. As the name suggests, Yellowheart has a rich pale to golden yellow colour that only darkens slightly with age. You can expect some pink and/or brown tones in our latest selection. It is commonly used for accents on furniture, flooring, boatbuilding, and turned objects. A little bit goes a long way with this bright wood!

Although these boards have been skipped dress to show colour and grain, they will still require some TLC and additional milling. If you would prefer to have the milling done for you - check out our S4S Yellowheart Lumber.

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 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.


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”

Nice yellowheart with color variation

Dimensionally very sound (no warp or twist) but with considerable color variation. I would have preferred pieces with uniform yellow color.
