Random Lengths

S4S stands for “surfaced on 4 sides”. Our S4S is produced in a moulder with all surface faces and edges very smooth.

Cabinet Facing (aka Face Frame) is typically surfaced S4S to 13/16" from 4/4 lumber to actual width.

Dimensional lumber is commonly S4S and labeled according to nominal size, or the size of the rough board before it was planed smooth. For example, 1 x 6 is actually 3/4 x 5-1/2. Dimensional hardwood lumber or S4S lumber is ready to be made into cabinets, furniture or trim.

Ash is a ring-porous wood with prominent growth ring patterns. The sapwood is light in color and can vary from a creamy color to nearly white. Depending on the species, the heartwood can vary in color from pale yellow to light brown with greyish tones, sometimes tinged with red. A very straight-grained wood, Ash can appear similar to Red Oak, with a coarse, even texture.

Depending on the species, Ash can be a very hard, strong wood. Typically, Ash is stiff with high shock resistance and excellent bending qualities. It saws and machines well and can be worked suitably with both hand and machine tools, with a moderate blunting effect. Pre-boring is recommended for harder species. Ash provides great versatility for finishing options. It takes stain beautifully in a wide range of hues, and glues and polishes well.
