In my travels with the day job I pass a sawmill on a regular basis but was never able to catch the owner. I lucked out last week and even had some spare time that I could stop and talk. I told him I was looking for some wood I could dry and use down the road. He says that he has a lot of stuff left from cutting ties and he would call when he had something. A few days later he called and had some hackberry. For about $120 I got 400 bdft of really nice hackberry to dry. When I picked it up on my day off I talked to him some more and he asked if I would be interested in a few other types of wood, including cherry. He says he runs into a lot of cherry that doesn't make saw grade but can still be sawn for ties. When that happens he likes to have some one to take the lumber that can still come from the log once they cut a tie from it. He says he'll sell it to me for .60 bdft.

You may want to just start building another barn now. At those prices, you're going to need room for lots of lumber. Good looking stuff.

Hackberry is a really cool looking wood. I've never had the pleasure of working with it, but have seen some beautiful examples of it in furniture....wild looking grain.
