I would check local suppliers (retailers) and find out what they are charging per board foot for cedar. Around here, retail pricing is about $2.30 a bd ft. When I come across a really good slab at one of the mills I frequent, I will purchase it for the mills price (usually about half of retail) and then when I use it for a project, I will sell it at retail.
