Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths

The creamy white sapwood of the Hard Maple is often tinged with pink or pale reddish-brown tones. The heartwood is more red in color, varying from light to dark reddish-brown. The growth rings produce a very fine brown line throughout the wood. The grain of Hard Maple is tight with fine texture, and usually straight, although several variations of curly or burled grain, which are most desirable, can be found in some Hard Maples. The burled wood resembles small circular or elliptical figures, that also are called Birdseye and when more irregular in nature are called Fiddleback.

Hard Maple can be difficult to work, blunting tools slightly. The wood dries slowly and shrinks extensively, which must be taken into consideration. Pre-boring is recommended prior to nailing or screwing. The wood is hard and heavy with good resistance to abrasion and indentation. Hard Maple takes stain and polishes well to produce a beautiful, fine finish.

Rough lumber comes in random widths and lengths.


  • 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.
