Just some data points....
- a 1x7 board 8 ft long has 4.6 board feet of wood in it.
- Here in NorCal, S3S (smooth on 3 sides) Walnut is around $8-9/board foot. I don't know about TX.
- Rough sawn should be cheaper than smooth, but I don't know how much cheaper
- Given your lack of power tools to smooth them down, let alone flatten any bows, twists, or otherwise, I'd make darn sure these boards are flat as a board (ha ha) before you buy them
