I am working on a design project for an industial engineering class I have to take and we were looking to make the supports out of wood instead of metal.

I am trying to find a ROUGH estimate of how much it would cost to have logs(douglas fir) turned down to a diameter ranging from 2-4 inches. Maybe a lumbermill quote? Do they charge by the BF? These are similar sizes to wooden fence posts that we are looking at, 5 foot long around 3 inch diameter.

A good price approximation for what i am doing would be turning a 4X4 to 3” diameter!
