Log to lumber deals

I have Red oak and White oak logs and am selling them as Kiln dried lumber. 1 log or all. When I can sell a log as lumber I can put a good price on it because the material isn't handled as much.
These are large enough to qtr. saw. or I can mill it however you would like.
Its good for woodworking since the lumber came from the same log, maximizing color match. But it's log run so the lumber is all the grades within the log.
I can also run the material as T/G flooring pattern, through the Weinig moulder if desired (reduced price .40 per bf T/G ). These logs will yield wide long rips.
Red Oak, 8' x 25" , butt log, 3 face log, 220bf Doyle scale.
White Oak 8' x 23" , butt log, clear no defects, 180bf Doyle scale.
White Oak next log up from the above log 5' x 23" , clear no defects, 113bf Doyle scale.

Kd lumber from these logs $3.00bf

I tend to gravitate toward wood with what grade sawyers consider "defects". Not drying defects, but grain defects. They are nothing but character in my book. The more the merrier.
Bill, I don't know if you are talking to me but I am north of you about one hour in bad traffic. I pass right near your hacienda when I go to Frisco which is not uncommon.
I am out in the boonies. I'll PM you my phone number and we can conspire and plot.
