Hi Andy,

I am not sure that domestic timber has gone up a lot in my area. Oak, cherry, walnut, maple are readily available. It is hard to keep them from going into firewood instead of lumber. There is more of a demand for firewood. I get rough FAS cherry for $3.40 US a board foot and hard maple for $3.00 a board foot. But I cannot get exotics without going through the internet. And there you have to pay full retail price. I am too cheap to do that. Ebay is another possibility for getting wood bargains but you have to shop around and be selective.
