I am curious about the way this is marketed, by the pound. Please correct me if I make any mathematical errors here. According to my experience (charts to back it up of course), for example, a 22’ X10’ log would weigh right at 1500 lbs. Using Doyle scale for milling that same log would yield 200 bft…or starting at $3.75 bft in log form at $.50 a pound ? I can only assume that includes bark too at $.50 a pound as a bonus.

Just asking, not trying to offend. I am in the sawmill business I don’t want to miss any new trends. If I can sell my logs for more money by the pound and not have to grade saw/kiln dry them and still make more $ per bft..I am all in !

Of course that was supposed to be a 22 inch x 10 foot log in the above example, mistype, sorry for not proofreading and any confusion. I will try to simplify the math a 1500 lbs log is $750, it should yield 200 bft = $3.75 bft.

I have seen the price for quality Claro walnut and am not saying at all that price is unfair. I am ,like I said, just unfamiliar with “by the pound” as opposed to bft. pricing.

daren the problem your having with the math in all this is that you sell wood to cheap i sell claro walnut turning blanks for up to $10.00 a board foot depending upon the grain pattern it’s also sold green right off the saw at that price i cant keep wood long enough to let it dry it all sells to fast ive been selling wood by the pound for about 25 years now mostly to veneer manufacturers ive sold walnut burl for as much as $10.00 a lb and redwood burl for as much as $6.00 a lb mostly what i sell are large and hard to find pieces i spend several hours a day searching the internet for wood at comparable prices an actually find that for what i have, people are selling it for far more than i do

I deal in my fair share of figured wood. You cannot say I sell wood too cheap, you have never seen my price list (no one here has, I am not here to do business) Wood like this sells for $17.50 bft.

I also mess with figured walnut.

Look at my avatar, that is $7.50 bft black walnut (and that is cheap for 18” wide book matched boards)

I still don’t understand, hence the questions (and the math for the others) are you selling whole logs for that, crap shot for the buyer ? Or select precut pieces by the pound, that would make perfect sense to me. I too sell turning stock by the pound. Like redbud burl.

I am not trying to make you mad, just get some clarification on what and how you are selling. (even if the last part of my first comment sounded a little snide, I apologize, I was tired after a long day of milling if you will accept that as an excuse) It was just vague to me. I may be the densest one here and everyone else understood your post ?

if ive done things right you should be able to find a pic of a walnut log here that i sold for $1.00 a pound no i dont cut slabs (usually) the most i do is rip the big ones in 1/2 so they can be moved easier the the saw in the picture by the way happens to be 7 feet long the log is 17 feet long and at the widest point it was 7 feet wide

Eric-
His last post was 125 days ago, so I dont know if he is still hanging around.
There was a phone number in his OP, you might try that.

If you cant reach him and are interested, let me know what dimensions you want, and I will check my stock.
I only have about a half dozen pieces of claro, but would be willing to sell some.

Dave
