Elm: Red 4/4, 8/4


Common name: Red Elm, Slippery Elm, Soft Elm (Ulmus rubra)

Found: Eastern to Midwest United States with a tree size of 50-80 ft tall, 2-3 ft trunk diameter, and an average dried weight of 38 lbs/ft.

Heartwood is light to medium reddish brown. Paler sapwood is usually well defined. Can be a challenge to work because of interlocked grain, especially on quartersawn surfaces. Planing can cause tearout and/or fuzzy surfaces. Poor dimensional stability. Glues, stains, and finishes well. Responds well to steam bending, and holds nails and screws well.

One Board foot = 144 Cubic Inches

Example: If you need a piece of wood 12 inches wide, 1 inch thick and 24 inches long, that is equal to 2 board feet.

12 inches x 1 inch x 24 inches = 288 inches. 288/ 144 = 2 board feet
