S4S Roasted Maple Lumber - Thick

Roasted Maple is a great choice for a torrefied guitar neck!

It doesn’t get any more Canadian than this! The hardest of the maples and the tree that gives the sap to make tasty maple syrup. The torrefaction process turns maple’s typical creamy white colour to a beautiful chocolate brown. It smells as good as it looks! Roasted Maple fretboards are a popular option for guitar building - see the options here . This unique wood can be used in just about any application.

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

Berry perfect

Craig Shorten (Ottawa, CA)

Staff picked the best pieces . Roasted maple used for laser engraving. A bit softer than some exotic wood but looks wonderful.

Love that wood!

Malik packed my shipment & did a great job. When I ordered I asked for straight-grained boards, and you all delivered. Wonderful stuff — couldn’t have picked better myself. To call the boards 4/4 rough cut understates the quality. They came in at 15/16ths smooth four sides except for one small area there another pass through the planer would have removed the saw marks. That’s just the way I like it! I don’t buy much specialty wood, but I’ll definitely put KJP in the running next time I do! Thanks again!
