Hi All, I just purchased some rough lumber at a very nice price in Western Massachusetts and thought I would let others know. This guy has an awful lot of lumber and really just wants it moved out of his barn. Of note are some very nice thick boards of hickory and red and white oak which would make excellent bench tops. He has a lot of other stuff as well. Here is his ad from Craigslist. Good guy, straight shooter and good prices.

(It is not me, and I didn’t know him until I bought this wood.)

Why do we have to go through craigslist, and not direct to him ?

rosebudjim: his ad is posted there. If you have a problem with that, don’t use it.

Guys, here is what I got. I didn’t have time to unload it last night, so I did it this morning. I halved all the long 6” boards, which were 10’ or 12’ in length. I did that for ease of handling.

He charged me only $50.00 for all of this. Not sure how that works out to board feet (I am not good at math). The thin boards are five or six feet in length, six and a half inches wide by 5/4 thick. The wide ones ones are about 18” – 24” (?), 5/4 as well.

Wish I’d seen this last month. Drove through there on my way up to Deerfield to get some sausage. Think I may need to plan another trip.

paratrooper34: I don’t have a problem with an ad on craigslist, what I want to know is why I can’t go around craigslist and direct to the seller. And if so, how?

The ad on craigslist IS direct to the seller. That’s how craigslist works. A seller posts an ad there and, crazy as it might seem, you contact the seller directly on there.

paratrooper34: Mollified is the word of the day. As never used craigslist before, how does one go about it?
