I just went out and bought a small load of lumber 50 bf of walnut and 50 bf of cherry at 3.50 a foot. The cherry boards are about 5/4, 6” wide and 8 ft long. The walnut is 4/4-ish, 10-11” wide and about 7 ft long. All roughsawn and kiln dried. I thought I got a pretty good deal.
The great part was the fella I bought the wood from. His name is Richard Mills and his company name is Logs to Lumber and Beyond . The great part is that he is a woodworker who saws his own wood and is a friendly as the day is long. Not only did I get some good looking wood, but I had the opportunity to chat with a fellow woodworker, see his work and see his shop. What a nice shop; it’s probably bigger than my house and he’s got some really cool toys, uh I mean tools.
I like purchasing lumber in the rough, and I particularly like buying lumber from someone who has the same objectives that I do. So if anyone is looking for lumber in Southeast Michigan, this is a good guy to talk to.
