  • Wood is SOLD pending payment, thanks for looking*

    FS Very nice, old growth, vertical grain Sitka Spruce I have approximately 130 Board feet of R/S lumber. (14) 16’ X 4” X 5/4 (5) 11’-1”+ X 6” X 5/4 (5) Assorted 5/4 lengths between 30” & 47” long, 3” & 6” wide. Some small leftover odd sizes from a project, already planed.

    A couple of the longer lengths are 4/4 although the odd lengths make up the difference in BF.

    This is very nice material, Most of it is very tight grained, 99% knot free, it’s straight and machines very nicely.
    Superior for Boat Building, Masts, Spars, etc.
    Price is;
    $4.50 a board foot if you take it all.

    Located in Mid-Michigan, PM with questions
    Thanks for the interest.

What no boat builders here? I certainly don’t feel you’ll find a better grade of SS for this price.

This is a real shame. I’d buy it myself except the shipping would kill me.
I know this material and have used lots of it. I can vouch for the fact that this is a great deal.
My local supplier lists it at $8 – $12 / fbm and it grows here!

Ive drooled over this one for several days. Id love to have it, all of it. Shame too, I just drove through Mi, all the way through Mi, from the tip of the UP to WV. What crappy timing. It would be a major part of what Id need for my spars too.
Still drooling.
