I have rough cut lumber that has been air dried for about 30 years. It is mainly walnut but a little mix of cherry and oak! Not sure how much is there but it is a lot! This is high quality wood so looking for a good price!
Looking to get $6 per board foot but can move a little bit!
$6/BF?!?!?!? I'm sorry, but that's insane pricing for MN. Within an hour of me I can get walnut for $3/BF from a few different people with mills, cherry for $4/BF from one of them, and oak for under $1.50 to $2/BF from several places. If you or the older gentleman you're helping out are serious about selling, you're going to have to move on the pricing more than just a little, IMO...
Hi Sprung and rinn69,
I was wondering if you might share the location of the mills where you can get dry walnut surfaced, select and better at $3/bdft. Down here in Southwest Michigan it runs around $5.50/bdft rough sawn kiln dried.
I spoke to the guy about a week ago and they don't have much left :-( He said what they do have, has been picked through pretty good. And they haven't kept up on their website, so the real price ended up being more around $4-$4.50 bd ft. Bummer for all of us :-/ It was Scandinavian Sawmill in Somers IA.
Good thing that I have some left!! :) I did talk to the owner of the wood and we will just have to talk about a price, he is older so good luck getting him to move. He doesn't want to give it away he said and the way it sounds is that my $5 isn't so far off! Air dried for over 30 years and always stored inside! The gentleman got the wood for projects so he only had good lumber to work with!
