FAS Grade - Available for American and West African Hardwoods and some European Oak.

The FAS grade, is the highest grade of hardwood timber, it is derived from the original grade ‘Firsts and Seconds’ and will provide the user with long, clear cuttings. FAS is best suited for high quality furniture, interior joinery, solid wood mouldings and cabinetry. The minimum board size is 6 inches and wider and 8 feet and longer. The FAS grade includes a range of boards that yield from 83% (ten-twelfths) to 100% clear-wood cuttings over the entire surface of the board. The clear cuttings must be a minimum size of 3 inches wide by 7 feet long or 4 inches wide by 5 feet long.

The number of these cuttings permitted depends on the size of the board with most boards permitting one to two. The minimum width and length will vary, depending on species and whether the board is green or kiln dried. Both faces of the board must meet the minimum requirement for FAS.  

Note: Minimum yield 83% clear wood cuttings on the poor face of the board.
