Ok, I’ll bite.

What’s 80/50 color?

Is that like 7/5 of people don’t understand fractions?

LOL No, its a grading that says 80% red on one face and at least 50% red on the opposite side. North Eastern cherry seems to have better color than say Wisconsin or colder climates. 90/ 50 is prime stuff and can go for in the $5 to $8 range depending on grain, etc these are “select or better (you may get a knot on one board) 8/4, 72” X no less than 6” 80/50 in color I have seen it and will get whats left the pile is about waist high and 4’ deep stacked I would guess around 1000 BFT plus another pile of 4/4 cherry, 4” – 7” wide 10’ + long I think the same price.

Man, I’d love to get in on that but something tells me you’re on the other side of the country. Where are you at?

Sounds like a good deal but a bit far to drive. My parents used to live in NPR. Nice area!

I guess it depends on the price. You should be able to get close to that in TN.

Thanks for the lesson. :)

I would definitely take some if I was closer, I pay $7.00 for 8/4 here and there is no explanation of grading…

OK, it looks like I will have 1000 board feet. I may even be able to deliver if someone wants 500 BFT, maybe a few people in the same area get together and we can meet at a location in the middle somewhere, all I would need is gas money. The more I buy the cheaper we all get it. Right now its at $3.25 BFT.

I would love to go in…but a trip to CA would be a bit much to ask…LOL….Nice of you to offer to other jocks though…I’ve been trying out here to get some folks interested in buying some bigger loads of wood out here in CA….I’m tired of paying through the nose for a couple 100 bdft.

OK I am confirmed. I will pick up 1200 board feet on Sat & Sun so any time next week is good. I have no idea where I will stack all this????? I am adding my gas money to the price so $3.30 per board foot is the final price.
