4/4 Rough Cut Redheart Lumber

Chakte Kok wood - the reddest lumber!

We cannot stress how rare and limited a batch getting this 4/4 Redheart lumber really is! Usually only available in narrow pieces used for turning spindles - we are excited to have some of this in a board form!

Although called Redheart for a reason -  be prepared for potentially a wide range of colours from light pink to a darker red. It's important to try and keep it away from UV light as it has a tendancy to neutralize the intensity of the colour pretty quickly. Best to use a finish that contains a UV-inhibitor.

Although these boards have been skipped dress to show colour and grain, they will still require some TLC and additional milling

What can you expect?

We will carefully handpick a high quality board for you. We pay close attention to the wood species characteristics so we can send you a board that well represents each wood type.

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”

Great pieces !

This is by far the best Redheart I have found. I’ve purchased multiple pieces in separate orders, and each time the pieces were great. They had beautiful red color ,and were free of any big knots or cracks. Thanks!

rough cut lumber

Some of the boards I received were of dimensions I was not expecting. Some were bigger than advertised while others were still rough on one side making them less then 4/4 in size.
Fairly good quality lumber, a few cracks along some edges which have to be dealt with.
