$6.99 seems a bit high even for QS. Might be worth looking at, though. If it's good stuff then it's worth it. Some trees have bolder rays than others, so the figure is much more pronounced. For me, it's worth paying more for. I have sawn some oak that barely showed anything on the quarter, and others that had very bold rays almost like tiger stripes. If I were building furniture from oak, i'd want the bold figure & wouldn't mind paying for it. I don't cut oak any other way than quarter. Don't like it much, but absolutely love the logs that have really bold rays. I always thought there needed to be a "custom" grade for the really outstanding & figured woods.
