Hello from Illinois

Hi all my name is Rob Schramm from Spring Valley Illinois. I design and manufacture antique mirror glass for a living and am a wood worker for fun. This seems like a great site so I am glad to join.

Darren,

I would be interested in a nice big section of Maple or Cherry to make a bar top, any idea of cost based on a per sf.

How thick ? How wide and long ? I would not have anything (in one solid piece) big enough for a bar top in cherry, I just don't see many large cherry trees here. Locally (and I could find you a sawmill closer to home) I would expect to pay $2-3 bft (sf @ 1" thick, so if you want 2" double these prices and so on) for maple, and $3-$4 for cherry for wood you are going to have to join for width...if you need a solid, say 24" wide slab you are going to have a hard time finding it...and the price is pretty much whatever the sawyer is asking. Expect 2X my above prices for such wide lumber.

I'll be getting ahold of you as I love having unique things, I was thinking 2" thick by like 12' long.

Also I have just became a fan of your site on Facebook and forwarded your link to all my friends as 99% of them are faux finishers and many are from Illinois. We all work direct with designers and designers love new ideas!
