I started a threat on this subject a few days ago.
I would like to update people on my discoveries regarding this wood.
I attempted to place an order with Seasonwood for 4 board feet of thermal treated white oak. I wanted to experiment with it by making a box. I asked them to cut 2 4/4 boards that were 6” by 48”.
The price for the wood was reasonable at $6.81/bf. However, the shipping cost was $53 for a one week delivery. I think part of the problem is that they are located in British Columbia and shipping out of Canada must be more expensive. I declined to proceed.
Hopefully, some US based company will consider marketing this product from a location where shipping can be more reasonable.
