Red Elm (Ulmus rubra) is found in the Eastern to Midwestern United States. Red Elm’s heartwood is light to reddish-brown with a paler sapwood that is easily defined. Interlocking grain makes this wood very resistant to splitting, but it can be somewhat challenging to work. Glues, stains, and finishes well. Excellent wood choice for steam bending. Holds nails and screws well.

Due to the nature of wood movement, shrinkage and expansion are possible. Please measure each piece carefully before starting any project.

Wood is a product of nature, and as such, no two pieces are alike to start with, while the same wood growing in different locales can vary greatly even though it is the exact same species.

Thin Stock. The thin stock is cut to size from quality, kiln-dried stock. Dimensions are +/- 1/8" of size listed.
