Mixed bag on CL for me. Industrial users, wannabes, must clean the garage, pole shed or attic cleaners usually have the best material, smaller quantities, not picked over and fewer defects (IF AD and any chance it got wet—grade out all sap wood-its punky and unworkable—I plan to have big stuff resawn). Stay a way from elderly, infirm, seriously ill and disabled owners. They usually don’t have a commodity to sell—its a love story for sale. Expectations are too high., not flexible on grade or price. They may short scale if you are taking the whole pile.

Trouble in your second picture—split ends, thin stock (I look for very generous rough or planed at 15/16 because you will need to replane or sand to use,) you need to see grain in 2-5” or plane idea is good. I’ve bought squirelly grain in 8/4 because I wouldn’t take the time to check each dirty. dusty board. I can use most grades and short stock for my projects but I try to pay commodity prices on purchases of 400 Bf or more. Softwood at $300/k and any hardwood no more than $750/k. You really need to know what you are doing or you’ll buy stock with limitations for high end projects (can’t make a silk purse from a sow’s ear.) The best advise I had—and taken—when making heirloom projects use a high end seller doing a good volume. You won’t go wrong. No economy in poorer quality stock that limits overall quality.
