Rough-Sawn and Surfaced Lumber


Rough-sawn lumber is the name given to lumber milled on a band saw. Lumber milled this way  has a rough yet uniformly even surface. This wood can be used without further planing or sanding for many applications and is actually often preferred for fences, siding, gardening projects, exposed beams etc. A band sawn 1×4 or 2×6 are larger than  conventional lumber, and some customers prefer it for this reason.


We offer all our lumber products with a surfaced finish. The sizing is to the industry standard (nominal) sizes. We stock 1×4 through 2×8 S4S  in both Douglas fir and Western red cedar. Other sizes can be surfaced on a special order bases. NOTE:  Both the fir  and cedar S4S are  a decorative grade, and are  best used in applications requiring this.
