8/4 Rough Cut Wenge Lumber

Wenge Project Boards

Product Description

Wenge is one of the darkest woods we offer!

What colour is Wenge? This beautiful wood has a distinctive look with a medium brown heartwood filled with black streaks throughout. The grain is straight and extremely coarse. It is often used as an alternative for projects requiring a dark wood like Ebony. Where does Wenge come from? This hard, durable wood is from Central Africa.

This is not a wood species for the faint of heart. It is extremely difficult to work with hand or power tools and it will dull edges quickly. It doesn’t even sand well because of the changing densities in the wood. The pores are huge and require filling in order to achieve a level finish. All that to be said, the end results are more than worth it! Wenge is used for furniture, turnings, and musical instruments. The slivers from this wood are plentiful and nasty. They often get lodged in the skin and can go septic. Be sure to wear gloves to help prevent these slivers!

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 Wenge 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”
