Great stuff

Excellent product. Well-packaged. Bonus: wood is almost a full inch thick, not ¾ inch.

Good quality worry free lumber

Being just started in woodworking not too long, buying lumber can be pretty daunting and time consuming for me. F2H makes this part easy by supplying me with worry free lumber every single time (have purchased about 30 board feet). I still buy lumber from a few other sources since I'm still in my infant stage but till now I can safely say that the lumber I've gotten from F2H is thus far the best in quality. Thank you guys and please continue surpassing expectations. Stay safe!

Focus on the finish

Purchasing from Forest 2 Home allows me to focus my attention on the finishing steps of my work. I do not have to worry about cutting large pieces of lumber down to the demensions I need. I can start off with straight edges and square corners. This is a time saver for me and helps me with storage in my shop. I also like that it is shipped directly to me which saves me from trips to the lumber yard. Lastly I am impressed with the quality of the lumber. I have made several purchases from Forest 2 Home and I have never received a single piece that was flawed. I am a happy customer.

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.
