Walnut, Oak, and Cherry for sale

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!

Wanting to sell all in one big lot? Or willing to sell smaller quantities? If willing to sell smaller quantities, what kind of board foot price are you looking for?

I live a few hours away from Rochester. For the right price, I might make the trip for some.

$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...

Yes this wood is still for sale, I had originally set a price of $5 per bdft but willing to negotiate. Send me a direct message if you are interested and we can talk more of email.

I'm in the same boat as stated above by Sprung...walnut, planed 2 sides, Select and Better for ~$3/BF. I'd have to get a planer and spend a lot of time planing and $$ on re-sharpening.

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!
