Here’s how you order custom cut wood:

 

1.

Decide which type of lumber you would like to use for your project. Our most popular options are:

a. Ultra-Lite MDF – Medium Density Fiberboard, is compressed sawdust & glue. It’s flat & smooth and is a good option if you are not concerned with strength and plan on painting.

b. Chinese Birch Plywood – Also flat & smooth, and has a very thin veneer that sometimes peels when staining, but works well for things like closet shelves.

c. Canadian Birch Plywood – The good stuff! We recommend for kitchen cabinets, bookshelves, furniture. Great for staining.

d. Baltic Birch Multiply – Even nicer! It is known for it’s even layers and voidless core. Usually, clients like the exposed ply look of Baltic Birch and choose not to edge tape it. 

e. Prefinished Maple – Already finished! Prefinished Maple has a semi-gloss UV cured finish.

2.

Decide on thickness, below are the thicknesses that we carry:

a. Ultra-Lite MDF – ¼” ½” ¾” 1”
b. Chinese Birch – ¼” ½” ¾”
c. Canadian Birch – ½” ¾” 1”
d. Baltic Birch – ¾”
e. Prefinished Maple – ½” ¾”

3.

Determine how many pieces you need, and the dimensions of each piece.

All measurements must be in inches and fractions, for example: i. 5 pcs of ½” Canadian Birch 4 ½” x 18 ¼”

4.

Decide if you have a preference for the direction of the grain on your pieces: long (most popular), short, or no preference.

a. Long indicates that the grain is parallel to the larger side of your piece.
b. Short indicates that the grain is parallel to the shorter side of your piece.
