How much are you asking for the wood? I would love to get some of it from you I live in CT. but could easily make a road trip down to you to pickup some of the wood.

If you want to sell small(er) lots, Craigslist would be a good place.

You could also try contacting some local cabinet shops.

Actually @kickback… I was initially selling it in bulk..
I havent come up with price in smaller loads. I was thinking 13000$ for everything.. Reasonable right?

There are some small woodworking shops in Bklyn and Jersey City that would buy lumber from you (I don’t know there names, but a small mill up in the Hudson Valley I know runs down there all the time. I’d say Craigslist as well, but I doubt they would take it all in one fell swoop.

If I didn’t live 2000+ miles away, I would come and get it. Craigslist would be fairly easy.

What a stash… For any sort of bulk sale, I think a cabinet shop would be your best bet. And at the price you’re proposing, it almost sounds like a steal (~$1.63 bdft?)

Selling by board foot and specific grade would help you immensely,

I would think. No?

With no knowledge of what wholsesale prices (that’s essentially what you have) are, I’d say that’s a good price. If I was closer I’d take it all, and resell most of it in 200-300 bd. ft. bundles.

I bought 500 bf of cherry, 8/4 ranging from 4 to 12 wide about a year ago for $1.00/bf.
But I just got a deal. Around here $2.50 to $3.50 /bf is more the norm.
Depends on where you are and your local market.
Dried and graded would probably 3x the price.

I have this wood because my familyfriend owned a very sucessful cabinet
Shop and he wants me to sell it for him.. (He is moving his buisness to a different country )..
Point being… I have very little knowledge on wood, i will ask him soon on how much everything should be sold for but i cant contact him for now.. Just wanted to have different perspectives on it.
