HICKORY/PECAN LUMBER - ROUGH RWL

HICKORY 5/4" - SPECIAL ORDER

HICKORY LUMBER – 5/4" – FAS
Rough Cut – Random Widths – Random Lengths

Hickory and Pecan are virtually indistinguishable species within the Walnut family of trees. The appearance of Hickory/Pecan sapwood is white and quite often tinged with brown. The heartwood ranges in color from pale brown to brown with red tinges. The heartwood occasionally takes on deeper reddish-brown tones, and is referred to as “red” Hickory. Both the sapwood and heartwood are coarse in texture, usually with a fine, straight grain.

Hickory is the hardest, heaviest and strongest American wood. Known for strength and shock resistance, true Hickories are stronger than Pecan. The heaviness of Hickory/Pecan can make it difficult to machine and glue, and much more difficult to work with hand tools. Hickory/Pecan has a high silica content which can dull cutters. Although Hickory/Pecan holds nails and screws well, pre-boring is recommended to prevent splitting. The wood sands well and offers a handsome appearance with medium to darker stains and bleaching.

Region: Eastern United States

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

  • 6/4 = 1.5 inch
  • 8/4 = 2 inch

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.
