i found this is a local Jacksonville FL craigslist post.

CUSTOM CUT HARDWOOD LUMBER PECAN $1.25BF MAGNOLIA $1.OOBF CHERRY $3.OOBF CEDAR $1.25BF GUM $0.75BF RIVER RECOVERED PINE $1.25BF MAPLE $1.00BF ALSO HAVE SOME TURNING WOOD 8% TO 10% MOISTURE. ALSO HAVE SOME PLANKS

i’ve already looked up working with gum and pecan and found some not so great things. the guy also said he has water oak, and he’d sell it to me wet for .40 a BF. i looked up water oak and apparently it can be pretty hit or miss as well.

He said the maple was silver maple.. which i read is pretty soft and so-so

basically, are the prices right? or are we talking expensive firewood?

I’m going to go check it out, but don’t have my hopes up.

The prices sound good, but you’ll never know until you see it.

Pecan isn’t the easiest to work with for sure, but it does produce some excellent results.
