S4S Shedua Lumber

Shedua wood is often called Ovangkol or Amazique!

We are excited to be stocking this exotic favorite again! It seems to have many names but whatever it is called - it sure is a beautiful wood to work with! Shedua ranges in colour from a yellowish to red/brown with darker brown or almost black streaks.

Can be used for cabinets, furniture, and wood turnings as it finishes well and really pops with a finish applied! It is also very dense and heavy - but that means it finishes well and can be nicely polished! Most often used in furniture, guitars and other instruments, inlays, handles, and turnings.

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