8/4 Rough Cut Black Limba Lumber

Not just for guitars and tonewood - but furniture too!

There is a large range of colour to Limba from light yellow to golden brown. In some cases there are grey to black streaks that is referred to as black limba. The lighter colours are sometimes referred to as white limba. As the wood ages, it tends to get darker. 

Black Limba is also very popular for our luthier customers who use it to make solid-body electric guitars due to it's very light weight and density. 

The pieces we select for you will always have some black streaking in a percentage of the board - sometimes even the odd flair of orangy-brown can be found.

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 Black Limba 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”

I bought four 8/4 black limba project boards each being 2 x 6 x 48. I made end grain cutting boards out of each one and it was absolutely beautiful wood and a great price.
