    What Is Surface Finishing/Planing?

    Rough Sawn- The edges are rough cut and both surfaces will be unplanned.

    SLR1E (straight line ripped one edge )- one edge is ripped straight.

    SLR2E (straight line ripped two edges)- two edges is ripped straight.

    S2S - The board has been run through a planer producing two flat faces, but the edges are left rough.

    S3S - The board has been surfaced S2S first, then one edge is ripped straight (also known as SLR1E or straight line ripped one edge).

    S4S - The board has surfaced on both faces (S2S) and received a rip on both edges, resulting in a board with two flat and parallel faces and two flat and parallel edges. This is the stuff you usually find for sale in the hardwood section of big box stores like Home Depot and Lowes.
    Note: Planing will reduce the total board feet you receive slightly. Moreover, the actual thickness may vary slightly.


    You take the length x width x thickness and then divide this by 144 (if all measurements are in inches)Here’s an example. A Lumber piece measures 20” wide, 48” long, and 1” thick Then the board feet will be 20 x 48 x 1

    Yes, most of our lumber, luthier products, turning blanks, bowl blanks, etc are all rough cut. We do plane body blanks and this option is added when you buy. We do plane them down at no extra cost.
