At that price I think he will be holding on to it a bit longer, out of the ball park.

Anyone want to go in as a group buy on me with this? I figure we can split half a board ft, and for $8 we can each have a pretty looking stop block.

I have about 6,000 BF of big leaf maple. I have never seen it for $35 a BF. Maybe $8 to $15 BF is more like it.

He will most likely have to burn it.
