CHERRY LUMBER – 8/4" – SELECT & BETTER
Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths
Cherry heartwood offers a beautiful, light reddish-brown color that darkens with age and exposure to sunlight. Some heartwoods take on reddish tones similar to Mahogany and deepen over time to a dark reddish-brown with golden overtones. The sapwood can be very light, ranging in shades from white to pale yellow. The straight, tight, satiny grain of Cherry can be marred by flecks or small gum pockets.
Cherry has long been recognized for its superior woodworking qualities. It is light, yet strong, relatively stiff, and rather hard. Dimensionally stable once dried, Cherry turns well, is easily machined, and works beautifully with hand tools. The wood can be easily glued and holds screws well. The smooth texture and satiny grain stains beautifully with exceptional results.

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.
