Spruce Lumber is an amazing choice due to its high yield potential and light color. It has a creamy, almost white tone, similar to maple, but is a more economical alternative. This lumber provides an even texture with a consistent straight gran.
It stains well and is thus used for kitchen cabinets, picture frames, molding, furniture, musical instruments (pianos and violins), plywood, and railroad sleepers. Spruce is also used as wood pulp in paper making.
Drying: The drying method depends on the size of the wood. Any wood that is 1” in width (such as that used for siding) will be kilned-dried. Any lumber over 2” wide will be air-dried.
Workability: Spruce is very easy to work on and is the wood of choice for many projects precisely of the ease with which spruce can be performed. Spruce can be glued, sanded, stained, nailed, screwed, and turned well.
Sustainability: The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) does not list spruce in its appendices.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species (IUCN) lists spruce as a species of most minor concern.
