Yamoos, some people here on LJs might be interested in it if they knew where it is located, your asking price for various quantities, whether or not you are willing to ship it, etc. Otherwise, you can list it in the classifieds of various ww mags like FWW. Good luck!

eastern Tennessee? The lumber will sell itself if your price is right, dont get to greedy with your pricing and you can build your own market. the existing market of barnwood and reclaimed material should help you make a profit.

How much per Board foot? Might be worth a trip.
