I think that you can gloat.
If you are accustomed to getting this sort of wood into decent shape,
then you know all the work that lies ahead.
I have a local supplier who sells (say) 4/4 red oak for about $2.25
(US)/bd ft. When I bought my first 100 bf, I drove away thinking how
smart and clever I was.
After a few days with my 12 inch planer, jointer, TS etc, I was not so
These days, I find myself turning to the pretty BORG oak for many of my
smaller projects - at about 3x the cost but 1/3 the frustration. Sort
of evens out.
It's a minor wood gloat, by rec. standards, it seems , but it is
It's a lot of work dressing this stuff, had to sand a couple
boards to remove dirt etc., but If the price is right I don't mind.
Nice to have a supply of low cost HW for shop jigs, projects etc
