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.

Walnut is a tough wood with medium density, bending and crushing properties, with low stiffness and moderate shock resistance. Walnut machines well and can be worked relatively easily with either hand or machine tools. A moderate blunting effect is to be expected on cutting edges. It has good steam-bending properties, holds nails and screws well, and can be glued satisfactorily. Walnut can be stained or polished to an exceptional finish and develops a rich patina that gains luster as it ages. Medium to dark stains are most popular for finishing Walnut.
