Kiln Dried Lumber - The Appalachian Hardwood Lumber Company offers the finest Northern Appalachian lumber available on the market today. This is based on several factors. One is our ability to procure lumber from the finest timber areas of Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and New York. The other is our employment of stat-of-the-art facilities and equipment. Last, we employ only highly trained lumber inspectors, lumber handlers and machine operators. These factors ensure that when you order from Appalachian, you will receive the finest texture, color and grade from our Kiln Dried Lumber. Below are some of the species we carry.

white oak
White Oak
- Light brown heartwood, prominent wood rays and strong grain pattern.

red oak
Red Oak - Similar to White Oak but with a pinkish cast heartwood and somewhat stronger grain pattern.

hard maple
Hard Maple - Shares many of the same qualities as birch. It is hard, strong and has a good resistance to shock. Hard maple has white sapwood and brownish heartwood.

soft maple
Soft Maple - Identical in appearance to hard maple but softer and easier to work. White sapwood and mild brown heartwood.

Ash - Combining medium weight with superior toughness and strength, the wood has pale brown heartwood and nearly white sapwood. The grain pattern is strong.

Poplar - A light weight fine grained wood with whitish sapwood and yellowish green heartwood.

Cherry - Machines easily and takes a beautifully transparent finish. The heartwood has a reddish brown color and the sapwood has an off-white color. May contain gum pockets and streaks.

Hickory - America’s heaviest, hardest and toughest commercially important hardwood. The heartwood is tan to brown in color. Sapwood is white.

Mahogany - Turns well, carves well, and is an excellent pattern wood. This reddish brown wood finishes beautifully and makes an excellent exterior wood.

Walnut - Machines and finishes well and is dimensionally stable. The heartwood is brown in color while the sapwood is white. Steaming the lumber will darken the color of the sapwood almost identical to the color of the heartwood.

S4S (Surfaced Four Sides)

S4S is a dimension product typically used by retail lumber yards, millwork companies, and cabinet manufacturers. Every S4S board goes through a rigorous selection and state-of-the-art manufacturing process.

First, the proper lumber is selected for superior qualities such as grade, texture, and color consistency. Then, all the boards are surfaced to a hit and miss thickness on a Newman-Whitney EPR-24 Planer. This operation virtually eliminates cup and minor surface checking. The boards are then scanned for width and defect optimization by a Grecon Dimter Scanner and then gang-ripped on a Raimann Moving Blade Rip Saw.

Next, the boards are optimized for length and precision double end trimmed on a Grecon Dimter Opticut 350 Optimizing Saw System.

Finally, the boards are run through a Weinig outboard bearing high-speed molder that gives the finest molded S4S finish available on the market today.

Appalachian produces S4S products from most of the species we carry, although some are manufactured on a custom-order basis. Below is a list of our in-stock items in Red Oak and Poplar.
