Dry Lumber

Selection of kiln dried lumber including clear dry Redwood, Cedar, Douglas Fir, Pine, Poplar and Red Oak

We carry kiln dried (KD) lumber in an assortment of softwood and hardwood species. From clear dry Redwood, Douglas Fir and Pine, to Poplar and Red Oak in common sizes and higher lumber grades. Kiln dried lumber is less susceptible to shrinking and is less likely to warp or check because it contains less moisture content. Applications include casework and trim, and any finish use requiring a stable, nice looking piece of wood.
