AFRORMOSIA - HARDWOOD EXOTIC LUMBER

AFRORMOSIA 8/4 RGH

AFRORMOSIA LUMBER – 8/4" – SEL&BTR
Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths

Heartwood is yellowish brown, occasionally with a reddish or olive-colored hue, darkening with age. Narrow sapwood is pale yellow and is clearly differentiated from heartwood. Grain is usually straight, though it can be interlocked. It has a fine, uniform texture and good natural luster.

Afrormosia is easy to work with both hand and machine tools, though surfacing boards with interlocking grain may cause tearout. Downsides include a slight blunting effect on cutting edges, and the development of dark stains if left in contact with iron in damp conditions. Afrormosia turns, glues, stains and finishes well. It has a distinct odor while being worked.

STOP — This item requires more information. You need to provide us with the following information for your lumber order.

Note: Quantity ordered refers to Board Feet.
Rough lumber comes in random widths and lengths.

ROUGH LUMBER THICKNESS

  • 4/4 = 1 inch
  • 5/4 = 1.25 inch
  • 6/4 = 1.5 inch
  • 8/4 = 2 inch

Please note – lengths over 10 feet are more expensive to ship.
The following board foot calculator can be used to help you calculate your order.

Board Foot Calculator
The easiest and most common way to calculate board feet is to use a board foot calculator.
Several different board foot calculators are available online or check your app store and download to your phone.

To calculate board feet of lumber, use the following formula:

    Board Feet = Width (inches) x Thickness (inches) x Length (FEET) divided by 12.
    Example – For a piece of lumber 2 inches thick, 6 inches wide and 10 feet long, you calculate board feet as follows:
    Board Feet = (6 x 2 x 10) divide by 12 = 10 board feet.

If your order requires specifics, call to verify we have exactly what you need.
Example: If you order 100 board feet and need one board 8'6" that is at least 8" wide and one board 10' at least 6" wide – be sure to state exactly what you need.
