I have about 43 board feet of White Oak left over from a project that I want to sell. The tree was harvested by one of my customers and he had someone mill the boards. He air dried it for 6 or 7 years in his garage. It is planed down to 13/16” and 7/8”.
The board’s rough measurements are as follows:
4” x 57 1/2”
5 1/4” x 51 3/4”
7 1/8” x 60 1/2”
13 3/8” x 64 1/4”
6 5/8” x 68 1/2”
12 3/4” x 51 7/8”
12 1/4” x 42”
9 5/8” x 41”
10 3/4” x 40 7/8”
7 1/2” x 37”
These are all left overs from a project I did for my client that he didn’t want anymore so most of the boards do have “character”... like knots and checks.
The wood does work really nicely. I used it as secondary wood on a dresser and to make jewelry boxes (painted) for my nieces.
I’ll post pictures later. I’m not sure how much this is worth so I’m accepting any offers.
I also have a 1 HP Craftsman tablesaw (cast iron top) that I want to sell. Its’ been sitting in my garage for a few years.

I got a bunch of questions so I thought I would answer them here (as well as through PM).
I prefer to sell the whole lot in one go but I will consider splitting this up if nobody wants it all.
All the boards were 4/4 boards that were milled down to 3/4” but the actual thickness is 13/16” to 7/8”.
One of the boards does have a big crack in it. When the tree fell down, it twisted which caused internal cracks to form. The lumber from that tree was especially nice so I already used up most of it.
Some of the other boards do have small checks in them.
The boards are not all from one tree. They are from two trees. One set of boards is a lighter color than the other. (It might be hard to tell in the images)
I will ship it if you are willing to pay for shipping. (Probably not worth it in my opinion)
These are all flat sawn although one of the boards here looks like it is quarter sawn. (You’ll always get a few quarter sawn pieces when flat sawing)
I think that answers everyone’s questions. Thank you for looking!

I still have about 10 – 12 bdft of the above oak left. I also decided to sell off my good white oak lumber as well. I have about 30 bdft. It looks like the above pictures without the knots. Its’ all clear (both sides) and 4/4 planed down to 13/16” Some of the lumber was air dried and others kiln dried. Unfortunately, I don’t know which is which. Some of the pieces have the sapwood and some bark still attached.
Most of it is pretty wide stuff… 10 to 16” and about 4 to 5’ long.
I would like to get $4/bdft but let me know if that’s too high.
I’ll sell the other oak boards pictured above for $2/bdft. That’s what I ended up selling the other ones for.

Have your say...
