Buying wood rough means you are getting
material that is unsorted, unsurfaced and it may have defects such as cracks,
knots or warpage. This material is direct from the source and will be in the
form of logs, rough boards or slabs with the tree bark along the edges. If
its bulk wood your looking for, contact us.
We will check what we have and get back to you on the size and cost. We can
cut down large pieces to a more manageable size if needed.
This service is offered to the model builder
working with modeling tools such as a 4 inch tablesaw, small thickness
sanders, scroll saws, lathes and drill presses. The material is cut in the
form of billets, sheets, blocks or strips. Resawn material is cut for the
most part free of defects but some small cracks or knots may show up. The
surface of resawn material has the saw marks and it will have to be finish
Three basic thickness of resawn sheets are
- 3/32 for finishing to 1/16 and thinner
- 3/16 for thickness of 3/32 to 1/8
- 5/16 for thickness from 3/16 to 1/4
- Any thickness of sheet stock is cut on request.
For the model builder who prefers to do his
own resawing and finishing, but does not want to work with large rough stock,
small billets, boards and half logs are available. This material is cut as free
from defects as material will allow.
This material has been thickness sanded to
exact size. Example: keel stock 1/4 x 3/16 x 24 or planking material 1/16 x
1/8. Milling is done in inches or millimeters. All milled stock is sold by
the linear foot.
