I recently purchased a plot of land to start up a hunt camp. In the process of putting in a road i had to cut some beautiful red oak trees down. Not wanting to waste the wood and burn it in the fire pit, I decided to attempt to process it into lumber. I picked up a Granberg small log mill attachment for my chain saw and ripped a few boards ( by a few i mean more lumber i would use in a year). after sealing the ends i have left the wood to dry for about a year and a half now.
my current moisture content of the wood is 12%, very little twist and bowing. For the most part all they need is a little TLC with a hand plane.
My question is how to determine the market value for the boards? i have about 40 boards at 2’ 1/4” X 12” x 9’ and 20 at 3/4”X 7” x 9’. All have live edge and have very little defects.
