Specify Cutting Size in inches as: Width x Length
(in 1/4" increments). Hint - for multiple pieces of the same
cutting size, preface cutting size by number of pieces as: #pcs example: 2
pcs 3"W x 35"L.
Qty = Quantity = your cutting size: Width times
Length, example: 5.25"Wide x 37.5"Long = 196.88 times, if
indicated, the number of pieces, finally roundup to a whole number so 196.88
is rounded up to 197. If there were two pieces of the example cutting
size the Qty. would be 394 (196.88 x 2 = 393.75 rounded up to 394)
- requested thickness is obtained using a single sided surfacer
(planer). Single sided planers do not remove all warp, twist,
etc. Though most pieces are flat - perfect flatness is not guaranteed. We
guarantee not to ship CH2F pieces that have warp and/or twist
exceeding 1/32" per 36 square inches of size. For Surface Grades
CH1F and below the only guarantee is a "best
effort" This is because the effect of different rates of moisture
absorption between sapwood and heartwood could warp and/or twist a cutting, even one that came out of the planer perfectly flat. Hint:
the most common way of obtaining a perfectly flat surface is to joint the
piece. If you need a perfectly flat piece consider increasing the
thickness ordered to give yourself some margin for jointing.
(surface planning) is per your specification in 1/16 increments.
Minimum 7/16, Maximum 1-1/16. Please allow for finish
sanding - typically 1/32 to 1/16". Other thickness options may be
added in the future. Email us with your needs.
