softwoods for woodworking

several softwoods excel in strength and durability

While hardwoods usually offer greater strength and stability, woodworking with softwood lumber can be a fine choice when building utilitarian projects (cabinets for the woodshop, painted projects, dog houses, etc.).

 

There are softwoods that excel in strength and durability such as yellow pine, redwood, cypress and cedar, all good candidates for out door projects like decking, gazebos, and patio or lawn furniture.

WHAT DO YOU GET FOR THE PRICE?

Prices listed are for rough lumber, sold random width, and random length. The lumber is manufactured to produce the best possible appearance while conserving the maximum usable product of the log. For orders requiring specific widths, lengths, and color, please contact us for a FREE estimate.

DETERMINING YOUR PRICE LEVEL

The footage of different species on the same order may be accumulated to determine price level. Ask us about special pricing on bunk (1000+ BF) quantities of any one specie. Prices and availability subject to change without notice.

SPECIAL SIZES

Printed lumber prices are for random width and random length lumber unless stated otherwise. We are happy to supply special widths and/or lengths for an additional nominal fee. Please contact us for availability and prices on special sizes.

OUR GUARANTEE

Your lumber purchases are fully guaranteed to be properly graded, measured and machined. LLJ does not guarantee products against loss or damage in transit due to circumstances beyond our control. To receive full credit for a returned package, the package must be in the same condition in which it wasreceived.

NOTICE ON LUMBER PRICES

Current hardwood demand is well below early to mid 2000 peaks but has shown modest increases through 2010 / 2011. This is due mostly to very large export growth of almost every specie of hardwood lumber. While domestic markets for hardwoods are still slow compared to the peaks of the mid 2000’s, production has also slowed in response and log inventories are also very low as most do not want to be caught with high priced inventories in regularly fluctuating market conditions. With this in mind, it is our goal to communicate accurate, timely information to our customers.

Prices and availability of products presented on our website and in our publications are subject to change without notice.

For the most current product, pricing, and service information, please keep checking our website, or call us at
