Topic tags/keywords: exotic hardwoods

Is anyone interested in buying whole collection of figured hardwoods? Have all types and varieties. For example, figured maples, madrones, and redwood, spalted myrlewood, curly maple and koa, zebrawood, african padauk, birdseye maple, bubinga, and many more.
Have about 1,800 board ft. of lumber available. Want to sell whole collection. Will throw in in misc. cherry and maple moldings too. Know the value but will sell for $7,500. This is an unbelievable deal!

Maybe put the word out that it’s for sale. I’m located in Woodland, California, which is just west of Sacramento. Thanks.

Many of the woods you mention (padauk, bubinga, koa, zebrawood) sell for well in excess of $10/bf. This sounds like a heck of a deal.

If you were closer to Iowa I would give it some serious consideration. However, 1800 bf probably means about 4 tons of weight. Shipping may cost as much as the wood.
