You are quoting per linear foot. When you do the math for the cherry it's close to \$11 per Board Foot.

5.5 X 12
-------- = 0.46 BF
144

\$5 / .46 = \$10.86 per BF

4.5 X 12
-------- = 0.375 BF
144

\$4 / .375 = \$10.67 per BF

The last time that I bought cherry FAS, 31/32", S2S, SLR, about 7-8" wide, trimmed to 7 foot lengths at my request AND the yard loaded the cherry into my truck for less than \$4 per board foot. AND all I had to tell them was that it was for furniture. They picked out the most beautiful clear cherry for me. That was about Thanksgiving last year. Not a single twist, warp or check in 26 board feet.

Use the right tool for the job.

Retail prices remain expensive.

This is what retail sells for in NC.

Walnut pricing

I sell walnut slabs up to 30" wide 8/4 thick and 8' long kiln dried for around \$7/bdft. At \$10/bdft I could ship them to you for that price.

Sometimes I also get good deals and I get it, even although I have no plans to make something. That is really good though.

What grade and where did you get it?

My sawyer sells me walnut for \$2 BF for 4/4 cut from veneer logs. Costs me another .35 at the kiln but its all FAS stuff. He stays busy at that price as well.

USE THE GUARDS! I started with 10 fingers and still have most of 'em left

Common, but he does not have pieces bigger than 5 inches wide at this time.

Hopefully prices will remain that low when he gets a new batch. I think he just wanted to get rid of this stuff. I haven’t planed it down yet, but if it looks nice I’m going back for more. WAY more.

His shop is in Ohio, 20 minutes south of Akron.

I would be tempted to take a drive right away, but at this point, after some bargain hunting, I have enough lumber to keep me going for at least 2 years, with the exception of a little bit of Yellow Heart.

Maple boards. 3/4 X 7 1/4 \$1.75/lf. 3/4 X 5 1/2 \$1.50/lf. 3/4 X 4 1/2 \$ 1.25/lf. Curly maple add \$0.25 per linear foot.

Cherry 3/4 x 5 1/2 \$5/lf 3/4 x 4 1/2 \$4/lf.

Oak or maple 3/4 x 3/4 quarter round \$0.25/lf. Also have oak base, casing, chair rail, crown, corner mold.
All boards are kiln dried, surfaced, an defect free.
I'm in VA and I can get cherry in just about any thickness or size and it's a couple dollars cheaper per board foot. The conversion takes a little effort but I'm coming out with about \$11 per board foot or something. I buy cherry at about \$6/bf. I buy curly maple for I think \$6/bf for 4/4 boards and maybe \$10-\$12 for 8/4. Clear "normal" white maple/silver maple is I think about \$4/bf. In Gaithersburg, Timonium, or Annapolis. I will say none of those are delivered. I do get to hand pick what I want though.

I dont know where in central PA you are but if NY is not a big deal to drive to I would check Craigslist in that area (like Binghamton, Elmira, Owego) I came across some ads that are not bad priced looking at what everyone has posted.

I don't plan my day in advance cause the word "Premeditated" ends up flying around the court room.......
