Topic tags/keywords: oak maple walnut cherry resource milling green

Hi Lumber Jocks, I recently purchased a trailer full of off the mill red oak. It was just what I was looking for 12/4 thick 96” long and as wide as 8-14” This was custom cut and @ .70 a BDFT I was happy to go pick it up. The wood is green so it isn’t immediately workable but at this price I could buy huge piles to work later and still not break the bank. here is Alan’s contact info If you are serious give him a call:

alanblock81@yahoo.com

Email Alan with your needs. He is a good man.

Prices are very reasonable in all he has.

You won’t be disappointed.

Even in these tight times that (provided the grade is decient, 2com? 1? uppers? millrun?) is a very good deal.
So now for the bad news- At the minimum it will take at least 2 years of air drying before you might be able to use it, most likely longer than that. From dead green the kiln schedule can go 6 months or more.

Good point for those unlearned regarding drying. I have 300 bdft of 6” that has been drying for the last 3 years. So the wait isn’t going to kill me. Alan has 1” as well, shorter wait for usable wood and if you intend to bend it steam and bend unlike KD lumber. Peace!

There is a way around the extended drying cycle; if you know what the end use will be you could resaw it to the target size + allowance for shrinkage etc. Under ideal conditions you could use 4/4 in as little as 9 months, but if it’s going to be a mantel or? all bets are off.
