Lumber on Craigslist
I came accross an add for 1600bf of lumber on craigslist. Talked to the guy and he wants to sell the whole lot at $2 a bf.
The lot is made up of:
some misc woods
Around me this is a very good price. The boards are on average 7-9 feet long with some shorter and some longer, all 4/4 or 5/4.
I think I will be kicking myself if I don't buy it but it is quite a bit of money right now. My only problem is that the Cypress is something I have no idea what I would do with. Through email he said he would sell without the Cypress but would like to up the price since Cypress is the cheapest of the woods in the lot.
Unfortunately he didn't take the bait and give me a price, he asked me what I thought would be fair. SOOOOOO....
Do I buy it all? if so what can I use cypress for other than outdoor stuff. Can I build furniture for my kids like bunkbeds, or is it more of a soft wood like pine? Nothing against pine but I prefer to build out of Oak or something for that.
Or do I offer a price for the rest, if so how much per bf? he says it is close to 1000 bf without the cypress
I also need a jointer and he has a 6 inch jet JJ-60S, but he wants $400 for it and I think that is WAY high from what I have found on the net. maybe some sort of package deal? by the way this is 4 hours from my house so I can't just swing buy and look at everything.
