SOFT MAPLE LUMBER – 2-1/2" S4S – PAINT GRADE
13/16" x 2-1/2" Surfaced 4 Sides – Cabinet Facing
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, 1x6 is actually 3/4x5-1/2. Dimensional hardwood lumber or S4S lumber is ready to be made into cabinets, furniture or trim.
Paint Grade Maple is a combination of sapwood and heartwood. Paint Grade Maple is not white. The sapwood of Soft Maple varies in color from creamy white to greyish-white and is sometimes marked with darker colored pith flecks. Although not as rich as Hard Maple, the heartwood is similar in color, with reddish-brown tones ranging from light to dark. The growth rings of Soft Maple are not as distinct as those of Hard Maple. Soft maple is straight-grained, without the exceptional burled or birds-eye characteristics that can be found in Hard Maple.
Soft Maple is less hard and stiff than Hard Maple, and low in stiffness and shock resistance. It machines well, with minimum blunting to tools, and can be nailed or screwed satisfactorily. Soft Maple takes stain exceptionally well.
Region: Eastern United States and Pacific Northwest.
