Topic tags/keywords: lumber grade

I was lookin’ about CraigsList and saw an ad for “Clock Grade” walnut at $4.00 bf. I’ve not heard of clock grade and couldn’t find anything that referenced it, so I was hoping someone here might be able to give me an idea of what “Clock Grade” is.

When you find out let us know. Did you e-mail or call him to ask?

Well, I emailed the fella and asked what “Clock Grade” meant and this is what I got back, ”Clear select 4 – 6’ the best selection. 3 to 6” boards quarter sliced.” He said it was $4.00 a board foot, so I’m going to take a look and see how it looks.

Any pictures or further info yet ? How thick are the boards ?

Well, he sold the clock grade, but he said he does have what he says is ‘Select’ at $8.00 a foot which seems a little on the high side.

I think “clock grade” means it’s so expensive you have to work out time payments. :))
