Random Lengths

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.

Poplar sapwood ranges in color from creamy white to greyish-white to white with a yellowish cast and is sometimes striped. The heartwood, which is usually tan, also presents a variety of tones, sometimes with a slightly greenish cast, and occasionally with dark purplish streaks. Poplar offers a uniform, fine texture and is light to medium in weight with a straight grain.

Yellow Poplar is exceptionally easy to work with both hand and machine tools, although its woolly texture can blunt tools slightly. It planes and turns beautifully and has satisfactory nailing properties with good screwing and gluing properties. It is a medium-density wood with low shock resistance and stiffness. It does not shape or sand well, but holds paint, enamel, and stain well. On occasion, stain will produce patchy results.
