I feel like I got a great deal on some lumber from a local vendor. I got all of this you see pictured for $100, walnut and ceder cut offs. and the larger boards are red oak. the red oak boards range from 12’ to 14’ long, all 5/4 and the smallest one width wise is about 6”

The best way to tell is tally up the lumber and see how many board ft you have in all. Then check your local price of the various species. The should give you the answer to your question..

Good deal, the cedar around here is dirt cheap from the mill, walnut is just getting stupid high, red oak makes a nice fire in the fire pit…..

The walnut alone is worth what you paid. The cedar and oak are basically free. Walnut is getting harder and harder to find, and the prices are way up. You did great.

Wow. If I found that deal and posted it, I would certainly be expecting a “You Suck” from SOMEBODY! So I’ll give you one myself …

Is it just my phone or does some of that look purple?

Great deal. I think you saved enough to deserve a bigger trailer. You always need to be ready for the next big haul.

I hope that you’re not going to keep it stacked like that for very long…..could be very expensive firewood.

It wasn’t stacked like that long, I unloaded it and stacked it in my lumber rack as soon as I took that picture. I think some of the purple your seeing could be paint on the bottom of the walnut. There is a guy with a mill close to my house sells super cheap. This is now a regular source at these prices for me. Anyone on the Virginia area that would like me to put then in contact let me know, I’m sure my supplier would appreciate the extra business
