S4S Spalted Beech Lumber

It’s amazing how different every board of Spalted Beech looks!

Normally Beech is a pale cream colour, but the spalting creates an amazing kaleidoscope of colours and patterns ranging from white to dark black lines. This wood looks great as an accent wood - a little bit goes a long way! Working with spalted wood can be a challenge. There are variable densities to contend with so be sure to keep that in mind while sanding.

You can expect your boards to be anything from a mixture of white lines to striking black streaks.

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

Like all the wood, thought the purple heart was pale, just can't afford much at the prices

Sasha Gillender (Nanton, CA)
Premium Spalted Beech

I’m really pleased with the piece I received. It was perfectly milled, dead flat and had beautiful spalting throughout so I was able to use 100% of the lumber I was sent. Thanks KJP!

50% not spalted

I use this wood for knife handles. Only the half of it was fully spalted. With a board of that size, i can make 20 blocks for handles, but with this spalted beech, I was only able to do 8 fully spalted blocks.

That being said, the good half was perfect. It's really nice for dye stabilizing.

It would have been a 5 stars review if it was spalted all the way.

The wenge, walnut, mohagony and maple were all perfect as expected.
