Can you give us some ballpark prices per board foot for each species? And keep us posted on whether you can ship small amounts.

cherry or oak $1.50

Walnut $2.00

rough sawn

I have yet to find a freight company near me that will deal in small amounts. I do own trailers and have a full size truck so I may be able to assist in deliverys with in so many 100s of miles

How old is the lumber and how was it dried?

Overall the more information you can gives us the better.

Should we assume that your prices are for board foot or lineal foot ?
Is it still Green or is it Air dried or Kiln dried ? Present moisture content is ?
Are you saying that UPS or FedEx don’t pick up material for delivery from your location ?
How long have you been in business ?
Personally , I wouldn’t buy anything sight unseen from the web… any pictures of your products ?

Trucking walnut and cherry from Il. to Ma. is pointless, the wood is readily avail. in that area.
Trucking is for exceptional or exotics , what with fuel pushing 3.00 a gal and rising.

UPS and Fedex are also options for smaller quantities. Check with them on their size and weight limits.

The wood is all air drying, the kiln only holds 200’ and its already sold. I will go take some pics and get a moisture content reading tomorrow. We are small, more or less we do this for fun and a lil extra cash when things get tough

Also, try posting in Craigslist, if you haven’t already. Under the “Materials” section would be a good place.
