I just recently signed on to Lumberjocks so hopefully this type of post is okay. I have a small shop in Tracy, CA. (Just East of the San Franicsco/Oakland area) I recently bid on and won an auction on some lumber from a moulding company that has gone out of business. By some lumber, as best I can tell it’s about 10,000 board feet. As best I can tell right now the wood included is walnut, white oak, hickory, white pine, yellow pine, cherry, black cherry, and ash. There may even be some more types of wood in there. Most of the boards are 14’ to 16’ long and are rough sawn with all types of various widths.
I plan on keeping most of the walnut and probably most of the white oak. I’d like to keep it all but it would take me years to use it all and it’s going to take up about 1000 sf of shop space. I got the wood for a good price so I’ll sell it for a good price. I don’t want to mess around with trying to ship any of it unless you’re willing to pay a premium price for my time in putting that together, so sales will mostly be limited to people who can come to my shop.
I’m having to wood moved to my shop next week and once I get it there I’ll be able to get a better view of exactly what I have. I don’t know prices yet, but I can tell you I’m motivated to move most of it so I’ll be selling it for cheaper than I get wood from my wholesale supplier. I’ll post more info on this thread next week.
