Wish I could afford it but the shipping would be a killer and I don’t want to drive at least 10 hours to pick it up.

Select and Better and heavy eyed can actually be 2 different things, select and better being the grade in general, and heavy eye being the grade of the birdseye, i have select and better, 2A and better heavy eyed which is from 2A to FAS but heavy eyed,

Shipping to a larger city isnt that bad, for about 25 bd ft. it would be around 65 dollars, which would weigh around 100lbs.

shipping seems to average for small quantities around $2 dollars a ft generally, this is all high end stock personally selected by me from behind the planer, I probally sorted through around 6,000 feet to get this amount, im a lumberman by trade, this is some of the finest birdseye ive ever seen

Probably cheaper to buy a boat than have that shipped to Alaska

Got any wide stock in the heavy birds eye? I’d be looking for 7.5” – 8”wide about 2 feet long, or in two foot increments, and 5” – 6” wide three feet, or in three foot increments.

Pictures to come, yes, i have some wide stock, alot of it is actually in the 5-6” range which is a very common cut when peeling the jacket boards of a log, or from off the cant closer to the heart, rikkor, i will see what i got and get you some exact pics. It isnt near a city, far from actually, the closest larger towns are Escanaba 40 miles, Iron Mountain 15 miles, Marquette 2hrs, Green Bay WI, 2hrs
