I’d guess a 12-inch flatrate is $13.00 or so? I’m not sure. I wouldn’t have any idea of a fair price per board foot. I’d definitely want some, though.

It would appear as though me & superstretch are on the same page, namely:
1) we both want some
2) we have no idea what is a reasonable offer
We will wait anxiously as this develops :)

USPS Flat rate box—12”x12”x5.5” (14.95, but every time I’ve gone to the post office, I’ve been advised not to use those. They’re more for heavy, long distance shipments) would be about 4 pieces? I could probably sneak in $30 paypal without the wife getting suspicious.. especially if it resulted in a nice candle holder set for her.

I’m with Stretch. My fiance’s sniffer usually alerts on $30 or more.

Its a good base amount to set that requires consent..

@Stockmaker – forgive me if that $$ seemed lowball >_<

Yes to pictures, but I would be concerned about the ‘green’ part of the description. How stable will this wood be as it dries in such small pieces? Is it turning stock that has been anchor sealed? You are on my list of people to contact about wood when I use up my current stock. I have seen some replies you have done about Burl wood. Welcome to Lumberjocks. We love to look at wood and some of us don’t have a nearby hardwoods store.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

How many boxes do you think you’ll be able to fill? I’m loving that live edge, especially the one with what looks like moss growing on it.
