BEECH 5/4 SUPERIOR

EUROPEAN STEAMED BEECH LUMBER – 5/4" – SUPERIOR
Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths

The heartwood of European Beech is pale in color, ranging in shades from pinkish-brown to an orangey-tan color. Generally, a blond wood, when cut, tones can be found from a pale, pale blond to tan, to medium tan-brown. When steamed, the color becomes a little more reddish-pink in tone. Colors tend to mute and amber over time. European Beech has a straight grain with a fine, even texture.

European Beech provides a medium resistance to both power and hand tools, with a moderate blunting effect on blades. Yet, despite the blunting effect, it machines well, overall. It holds nails and screws well without pre-boring. European Beech glues easily and stains well. It takes finishes beautifully and provides attractive results when stained, lacquered, or varnished.

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.
