Just a few cutting boards

Just a few cutting boards I made to get my stock up. I’ve started putting my stuff in a store so I needed to build up my inventory. These are all roughly 12” x 8” x 3/4” in size. The woods I used include maple, walnut, cherry, jatoba, padauk, and purple heart. Nice easy long grain boards that can be whipped out pretty quickly.

Those are very nice boards. Mind if I ask what price you will be asking for them?

It is pretty low but I’ve found that in my area people just don’t pay for stuff. They would rather just go buy something from Wal-Mart for $3. It stinks but unfortunately I think that $20 is about all I’m going to be able to get for them. I tried selling them for $40 and only sold one over a good bit of time and I had come up with some extravagant designs. Since that didn’t work out I went to a bit simpler designs and lower price. In the store I have them for $20 and the store gets 3%. I’ve found that if I use more of the “cheaper” woods (ex. Maple) and use smaller pieces of the high dollar exotic stuff that I can make them for fairly cheap

I don’t know where you live but you might check for a saw mill in your area. I buy a lot of my wood from a mill about 40 miles away. They have woods like Mesquite, Red Cedar, Sassafras, Bois D’Arc, Walnut, Cypress and several kinds of Maples. All woods are usually available in 4/4” and 8/4” and about 1/2 the price of what Home Depot sells their Oak and Poplar for. He also gives me some First Cut boards that I get some nice stuff from. I can drive up there, sort through the boards and for $200 I load my Suburban. It is like a toy store for wood workers. This really cuts down on the cost of lumber.

I would love to visit a saw mill like you are talking about OldWrangler. I have one logger friend here on the Island that will sell to me at wholesale prices, but because he is logging Koa, Monkey Pod and Mango, they all cost allot.

I have a mill I go to but they are still fairly high on the exotics. As far as maple, oak, ash, beech, and the more readily available stuff they are pretty reasonable. I agree it definitely pays to find a mill home depot and other retail places upcharge like crazy and they’re lumber is normally not as good a quality.
