S4S Yellowheart Lumber - Thick

Yellowheart is one of the few hardwoods that doesn’t lose the colour vibrancy that you see after aging.

What is Yellowheart? It is actually Portuguese for ‘yellow wood’ and is a beautiful wood from Brazil. Also known as Pau Amarello, this wood works well with both hand and power tools though areas of interlocked grain or figure can pose challenges. It can have a moderate dulling effect on tools and has an odour that is an acquired taste. As the name suggests, Yellowheart has a rich pale to golden yellow colour that only darkens slightly with age. It is commonly used for accents on furniture, flooring, boatbuilding, and turned objects. A little bit goes a long way with this bright wood!

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

First time buyer and will be back!

First time buying from KJP and also the first time I bought any lumber from a supplier. I have to say I was very impressed with the quality of my lumber and how quick it took to delivery from Canada to the United States. Will definitely be using KJP as a supplier for my startup business!
