Paul, you are paying about $8.60 US per board foot for the walnut. I just bought 100 feet a couple of months ago from my supplier and paid $3.00 a foot for FAS kiln dried wood.

I just picked up a 4×8 sheet of double sided Walnut for just under $100 – It’s a beauty, though.

Here’s where I get my lumber:, so $3.50 for “A” quality which they call S&B. Honestly, I’ve seen their “B” quality stuff too, and it looks fine to me.

I pay $3.00 a BF for 4/4, while 8/4 is $4.00. I feel pretty lucky now!
