Greetings, Supplier —

If you can provide FSC® 100% Hard Maple, we'd like to see about ordering a sample of 100 to 1000 board feet with a significant potential for ongoing orders.

Our typical block stock, milled square, is 2.75" x 1.375" x 4 feet, so 3" wide 6/4, 7/4, or 8/4 meets most needs. Many of the blocks we make measure 11 or 22 inches and must have no defects on any side for those cut lengths. Experience tells us that FAS and Select or Better produces significantly less waste, particularly because a significant portion of our business is bulk purchases of these longer children's blocks.

Because our product is 2.75 inches wide, 4" wide boards are 25%+ waste to us. Boards that are between 3.5 and 4.75 inches wide should be sold to someone who can use them for a purpose that will produce less waste, like flooring, furniture, or cabinetry.

We prefer 3" wide boards, although that width is technically beneath the requirements for FAS or Select & Better. We can also use 5" and wider boards effectively.
