I answered a for sale add for 4 pine boards 3” X 20” x 96” each for $100.00 When I got their 2 of the boards were only 11 inches wide and the seller wasn’t coming down on the price at all so I took them all for the $100.00 . When I got them home it was obvious they weren’t all pine by the weight. As it turns out the two narrower boards were 3 inch thick Maple!
Last year I picked up some used Red wood that i made my deck railling with from Craigslist.
And some Birch that I made pocket doors out of. I love a good Lumber Find.
