A few months ago someone I knew was tearing their deck off the house so they could build a new one. As it turns out the old deck was all Redwood so I offered to take the wood from the old deck. I ended up with a full trailer load. I have since used some of it and once planed down I have found that most of the wood is in great shape. It is construction grade redwood but I have run into very few knots or defects. Its been mostly very clear. There are rows of two nail holes every two feet or so. I have a plug cutter and have plugged the holes on the wood I have used.
I have had the wood for a few months now and I just don’t have enough room in my shop to house it all. I could also use some extra money right now. I have searched some different sites online and from what I can tell Reclaimed redwood can still sell for quite a bit of money. I checked ebay and couldn’t really find anyone selling smaller amounts of Redwood..
So my question is if I sell this wood what should I charge per lin foot? The most of what I have is 2×6 and I have boards up to 16 feet long. I don’t want to give it away but I also don’t want to charge too much. If anyone can give me an idea of a fair price that would be great.
Also if anyone on here is interested let me know, make me an offer and we can work something out. Thanks for your help!
