It has been a while since I built a project out of maple, and I have no idea what the board foot costs are. I will be building a ten drawer dresser and two nite-stands for a friend. She wants just ordinary white oak (no curly maple or other premium figured maple).

Question is: where can I buy 4/4 and 6/4 (or 8/4) maple in Southern California; and what can I expect the board foot costs to be?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Tenderfoot Bob

I’m confused. You say she want’s white oak but you’re looking for maple.

Bohnhoff Lumber. Best prices. Just call and ask.

Soft maple is cheaper. Maybe $2.80 bf in 4/4.

AlaskaGuy: Sorry for the confusion. My bad. I meant maple, not white oak.

Loren, thanks for the tip! I’ve had a bad experience with Bohnhoff with walnut; but @ $2.80 bf for maple I’ll will check them out again.
