It will vary based on your region. Retail is $5.50 to $7.00 near me. However, I can routinely find it on CL for anywhere from $1.50 to $3 a board foot.

I have yet to purchase any walnut, but these sites may help you with your question;

The amount it take me to feed my chainsaw gas and haul the tree to the mill and home. I see free walnut on Craigslist quite often.

I sell it for $3.75 to $5.50, kiln dried and skip planed to 15/16”. The price depends on the grade and the amount of sapwood. The price of walnut logs is way up, so you guys that have been getting it dirt cheap better stock up. Commercial prices of walnut are on the rise.

Retail is usually $6/bdft, but sometimes on special (4-6’) for $5/bdft. I’ve found it as low as $3-$4/bdft from local kilns/craigslist.

Your results will vary based on regional availability.

I bought 200 bd ft of black walnut and black American Cherry through Downes and Reader Inc in Stoughton, Ma.
Delivered to my front door in 25 bd ft bundles for $7.00 bd ft. That’s 1831 miles on Fedex trucks. I had it in less than a week.

$6.75 for 4/4 rough Walnut retail in Seattle. About the same for Cherry. I usually wait to find it on Craigslist for $4 or less.

You should move over near our shop. I give the local bandmill owner $6 per BF which is about the same as the commercial supplier charges. The thing is, I want air-dried and not kiln-dried. The air-dried is more pleasant to work with and bends way easier and our local source provides good, clear walnut that’s been dried in a barn for 2 years.

Since his product is good, we pay him full market rates.

Kiln dried stuff comes from a commercial supplier that gives us good prices and free delivery.
