Perfect cut

Wood was great quality and blemish free, worth every penny

Jena Marie Henkelman
Excellent product and fast shipping

These boards worked perfectly to cut into plinth blocks for our molding renovation. The finish was just gorgeous and required minimal sanding.

Extremely Pleased

I am a DYI woodworker with intermediate skills. Finding quality wood for my projects is always my biggest challenge. The only sources in my area are a big box store and lumber stores that are over an hour away. I have ordered twice from Forest 2 Home. Both orders were filled correctly and I received the shipments in a few business days. They were well packaged and arrived with no damage. I used the first order of walnut and white oak to make a checker/chess board for my grandson. The finished product was one of my finest projects and I give most credit to the beautiful hardwood supplied by Forest 2 Home. I purchased a second order of red oak solely because of the quality of the first order, and it was on sale. I have no idea what I'm going to build yet but it won't be long. I can't wait to transform this beautiful raw wood into another fine looking project. I highly recommend Forest 2 Home to any DYI'er looking for a high quality product at a reasonable 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.


Red Oak

American Red Oak only naturally grows in North America. They grow mostly throughout eastern hardwood forests. Red Oak can grow higher or lower in altitude, giving them different characteristics based on location.

⚠️ 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.
