S4S Zebrawood Lumber

It's hard to beat the visual drama displayed by Zebrawood!

The name says it all! Zebrawood has light brown and dark brown steaks that resemble the coat of a zebra. You’ll find anything from straight quartersawn surfaces to chaotic cathedrals seen in flatsawn material. Also known as Zebrano, this popular wood is commonly used for furniture, tool handles, and even skis.

The wood is prone to tearout due to the often interlocking grain but saws well enough. It glues well and takes finish well though a clear pore filler is needed for a smooth finish. This is another wood that has a notoriously unpleasant smell with worked.

Where is Zebrawood from? West Africa. It is a KJP favourite wood and we look forward to seeing what you build with it!

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

Great lumber

Received my lumber and it’s all great quality. Zebrawood is beautiful. The aspen as a substitute for holly is almost identical. I will be ordering again soon!
