Im in the Southeast GA and Northeast Fl area. Here we seem to have no steady supply of hardwood, and the prices are all over the board.
Walnut finish cut and planed is $30 a bf Really? Thats Woodcraft’s price.
My question is: What is a fair price for hardwoods in your area? Specifically walnut, poplar, red/white oak, and cherry for small orders less than 100bf.
One of the reasons I ask is because I have access to these, but they are 6 hours away at my dads. He has a sawmill, and an abundance of trees that people are willing to let him cut and haul away from their land. Last time I went up there, I came home with over 1500bf of decent quality lumber. I am thinking about hauling a few loads down here to sell to people like me, who just want small quantities here and there. I have no idea what the price for these woods are anywhere, especially here because it varies from source to source, most of them being people who ran across a little here and want to sell some to pay for what they got, or they had to buy 300bf to get the 120 they wanted. Can you guys help me a little here to see if this is worth looking into please? If anything it will help me keep nice wood in my shop, and supply some quality hardwoods to the other hobbiests in my area. That would be worth it to me anyway….but a little change for some tool upgrades would be good too.
Thanks in advance!
