A good bunch of cherry.

As a hobbyist it is sometimes hard to find places to source material. This place is great, I can order anytime I want and get the wood in a reasonable time. I have made several orders from them for the hobby season this year, I built a bunch of shelves, cutting boards, and tables for both inside my house and a few work tables for my garage, and I have not been disappointed yet. I have not ran into any pieces that were too wet, and only a few that had twists that I could not work out, but no more than I would normally run into. But that is where they become practice pieces or for other projects or fuel for the smoker.

This company/service has saved me a ton of time going to the lumber yard, and though the lumber yard I go to typically has 4SS wood, I actually like the 2SS wood a bit better, because it allows me a bit of leeway in gluing up panels, because I can leave them a little oversized before doing the final dimensioning after I get the panel glued, up to the dimensions that my planer can handle. Plus it is kind of fun running wood through a planer.

This pack in particular , I have ordered 2 of the 1X2X24 packs, I am using to make the body of a nightstand that will be just over 2 feet tall with the top, and from what I can see with my order I should have enough to make the project.

This Company is a hidden Gem

I really didn't want to write a review because I wanted to keep this company a secret for my wood supply.
I have placed two orders 1x4x24(6pack) Cherry and 1x4x72 (6pack) Red Oak. Both were very well packed and protected from shipping damage. The packet were shrink wrapped at the edges, holding the boards in place during shipping and making easy handling.
The wood I received was great. Planed 4s and all edges were crisp - no damage. I am over the moon with delight at this company's quality product, fast shipping and follow through.

THANK YOU Forest2Home

Good deal

Good clean boards. Great to restock for small projects like cutting boards. Handy size, good price.

Premium Quality

Our premium hardwood is 100% clear grade on one side. You can expect no wane, rot, splits, cracks, checks, chipouts or pith.

Kiln Dried

Kiln drying allows us to control the air flow, temperature and humidity so that the hardwood dries 6%-8% uniformly and can be finished to a smooth surface.


All lumber starts off rough. We surface two sides to a smooth surface so it’s easier and quicker for you to start on your project.

Tree Facts


American forest cherry trees grow principally in the northeast of the USA in mixed hardwood forests. The trees grow tall and in dense stands with short rotations.

⚠️ WARNING: Drilling, sawing, sanding or machining wood products can expose you to wood dust, a substance known to the State of California to cause cancer.  Avoid inhaling wood dust or use a dust mask or other safeguards for personal protection.  For more information go to

At Forest 2 Home, our lumber is S2S (surfaced 2 sides), unless otherwise noted, and is commonly referred to as hit or miss. Hit or miss markings are not defects and are totally normal in the planing process.

Generally, you can clean hit or miss up beautifully at 13/16" or to your preferred thickness at home, which is what we mean by "Our hardwood isn’t a finished thickness (hit or miss) and may still require you to flatten, plane, shape or sand your boards to fit your project."

Have any questions about hit or miss? Email us and a Forest 2 Home team member would be happy to help.

Right below our Premium grade is our new Character grade, which can include knots between 1/4" and 2", bark, and wane. You can still expect no splits. We have Character grade boards in several sizes and species. This grade is perfect for unique statement pieces. Shoot us an email at to learn more, see photos, and place a custom order.

A board foot is a unit of measurement for lumber. A board foot is calculated by taking the length (in feet) x width (in inches) divided by 12 x thickness (in inches).

S2S stands for surfaced 2 sides.  It may still require you to flatten, plane, shape or sand your project parts to fit your project.

Opposite of heartwood, sapwood is the living part of the wood, commonly found near the outside of the log and has a white coloration.

Heartwood extends from the pith to the sapwood. The cells of this part of the wood no longer participate in the life processes of the tree which cause it to have a brown coloration.

Wane is the bark or lack of wood on the edges and corners of lumber. Our team ensures no wane by running our lumber through a planer to create square edges on all sides.

Pith is located at the very center of a tree and composed of soft, spongy cells. It has a greater tendency to crack and is unstable. All of our wood is thoroughly inspected to make sure no final board contains pith, leaving you with a durable hardwood board.

Yes, we shrink wrap the boards together to eliminate any boards shifting during transit. We also use edge protectors to protect the corners and edges of your hardwood against any damage.

Our grain guide has information about each species and also has a grain picture to help you identify each hardwood species.
