I really needed a piece of birch a few weeks ago. I called my usual wood supplier only to find out that he was in Florida and wouldn’t be back until the 15th. But I really NEEDED the birtch so it was off to HD. Almost fell on my butt when I saw they were asking $35.00 a board. I was stuck so I started looking at it… I took about 7 pieces off the rack before I found one that wasn’t warped or cupped. $35.00… plus tax. I was so glad when my guy finally got back. I went to see him and got $50.00 worth of rough birtch… 4 times more than what I got for $35.00. I built my new basement steps a couple of years ago and bought all my wood from my guy… the total bill for the oak lumber was $200.00. Imagine what it would have cost if I bought the wood from HD… or any other outlet? I shutter to think about it.
