Each of these slabs have pith cracks their entire length. They can still be used full width if desired or ripped down for use as fireplace mantels or wall shelves. Each slab is 9’ long and 2” thick, widths range from 20” – 24”. Slabs were milled in the Fall of 2013 from log that was down for 3 years. $30.00 – $50.00 each.

Let me get a group buy together. Even 4/4 common is $2.25 bf here. Where you located and how much do you have? I’m not a fan of Oak myself but I know plenty here who are.

On a side note for anyone interested in the slabs, the two slabs in center have great medullary ray flecks. Slabs could make for some nice rift sawn leg stock as well.

I am in AR. You can google AR sawmills and call them for oak prices. Here mostly they deliver to Saint Louis. As you know different parts of the country have different species of wood. We used to burn cherry, maple and birch when I lived in New England for fire wood. Here we burn oak and hickory. I would love to get my hands on some of the maple we burned in New England now, but I have to drive 1500 miles to get it. By the way if interested, walnut here sells for $2/BF at the mill. i can get you phone numbers of people I deal with.

I have to agree with many on pricing. In Minnesota, mill run red oak goes for between $1.00 and $2.00 per bd ft. and the material in the pictures looks to be a low grade with all the knots and splits. Perhaps it could be sold through CL to someone looking for that type of character for a special project? The slabs would be more saleable if they were ripped straight on one edge.

Here in NE Ohio, most oak runs between $1.00 and $1.75/bdft. If it’s really nice quarter sawn white oak maybe up to $2.50/bdft. at the most. I’ve always got people giving me ash and maple logs.

You guys are lucky with the low pricing. We don’t have that here unless making 1000 bf orders.
