I know a guy that has a couple of small lots of cherry. He has 36 bd ft of quarter sawn with some rift sawn and he has it priced at $3.75 a bd ft. Lengths are all 5 ft and half of this is 1×8 with a couple 1×6 and the other half is mostly 1×2 or 1×2-1/2 with a couple 1×3… so $135 for the lot.
He has another small lot of plain sawn. 45 bd ft. Half is 1×4 and half is 1×6 and again all 5 ft lengths. Priced at $1.50 a bd ft.so $67 for that lot.
Rough sawn, air drying but not quite ready yet. So I’d be leaving it alone to dry in the loft for a bit, but how does that pricing sound?
This is the same guy I got about 450 bd ft of hemlock from so I’m familiar with the quality of his cuts. He uses a pretty big band saw mill.
