Cherry Review

This is the first time ordering from Forest so I wasn't sure what to expect. The boards were very well packaged and look great. My only complaint is that one of the boards was slightly bowed and one had a small twist. I'm hoping that I will still be able to get a full 3/4" after joining and planing.

Better than expected.

First time ordering hardwood online, very pleasantly surprised. Price point & free shipping (ok know it's figured into price) hooked me into giving them a try. What a surprise, arrived quicker than expected, boards were to specifications in description. One board had a small damage from shipping, box was torn in that spot, blame UPS for that, but was able to use that one anyway. First time using maple wood, building a small drop leaf table. Very,very satisfied will be using Forest2 home in the future.

Great Boards!

This is my first "sight unseen" lumber purchase so I was not sure what the quality would be since I did not pick the boards out myself. I can verify that the boards were of excellent quality - straight , beautiful color, and free of defects. True 15/16" x 4" boards that I can't wait to start to work with! I also appreciated a hand written note wishing me "Happy Woodworking!" on the inside of the box. That tells me there are people at Forest 2 Home that are passionate about providing excellent, sustainable wood to enjoy. I have found my new lumber store!

Quality and quantity

Great boards that came out of the box looking good. All but one were perfectly straight and went straight into planing, one had a very slight twist that was easy to shim and plane out. They come full dimensions - not nominal - which means you get more bang for your buck and can plane/rip them down to nominal if that's what you need. The full 4 inches wide enabled me to do a project that required more than 3-1/2 in square with the end scraps. I thought they looked good even just out of the box with a few scuffs and rugged parts, but once I planed them they really popped. Only the tiniest knots/voids in a few boards that you could barely fit a pencil in, nothing that had to be cut out and most boards had none. Finished them with a few wipes of tung oil and they go from a reddish blonde in the pictures to the rich red-brown you expect.

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.

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.
