It depends on the grade. The seems like a decent price, but if it is narrow, short, knotty or sappy then it is not necessarily a good deal. I have paid $1 per bf and regretted it.

in the Minneapolis area I normally pay $2/bf for Select or FAS green cherry, or $3 for air dried, for $4 for kiln dried. Occasionally I will go look at cheaper stuff but normally it is either full of the problems described above, or it was dried improperly and is badly distorted, checked, etc.
