FS: Oak, Maple, Cherry, Walnut in Kentuckiana


I have a friend that has a bunch of wood that he milled from trees he felled on his property.
Much he's going to use for his cabin, but he has more than he can use. I told him I would post it on this board (forgive the pun) to see if anyone is interested in relieving him of his growing stock.
He has a BUNCH of quarter sawn white, red, and burr (sp?) oak cut in 1 inch boards. It varies in width from 4 to 10 inches. I think most of it is in the 6-8 inch range. It is kiln dried. He wants $5 a board foot (1 inch by 12 inches by 12 inches). So, for a 6 inch wide board it would be $2.50 a linear foot. He has 2 stacks about 5 feet tall, 3 ft deep and 8 ft long. There are 1 inch stickers in between the boards, so figure each stack is 2.5 ft tall if stacked without air gaps.
2 nights ago I helped him stack some plane sawn cherry he just cut with some 1 inch boards at 14 inches wide! Some of it was cut in 2 inch depth. There was also a bunch of walnut with some boards about 28 inches wide and 3 of those 2 inches deep. Beautiful stuff. This stuff is fresh and would require some drying before it could be used. He realizes this and would be willing to sell it for less. Most of this stuff is 9-10 ft long I believe.
If you are within driving distance of Louisville, KY and interested, let me know. If he can sell some of this stuff, he's going to give me some of that walnut, so don't be shy!

I think he's willing to negotiate some. Checked some comparable areas and he's not too far off: Supposedly, one guy bought some of his stuff at $4/bf and turned around and sold it for $8/bf but I don't know how accurate that story was what the situation may have been. I know my buddy is honest as the day is long, but I don't know about the other guy in the story.
Also, I don't know what grade this stuff is It looks like really good stuff, but I'm not an expert by any means.

Tell him to call Hollingsworth Lumber in Russiaville IN and Lukens Hardwoods in Knightstown IN, and ask what their prices are on those woods. Then tell him to ask himself if he's being reasonable asking $5/BF.
Hint: I would have to drive twice as far to get to him as to Russiaville or Knightstown, *and* pay more for the wood when I get there. That ain't gonna happen any time soon.

I'll mention that. He's not stuck on that amount. He just thought it would go for that. If it only goes for $1 a bf he'll sell it for that.

I thought the oak was quite steep in price. If I calculated it right it is more than the BORG. Oak just does not cost that much in the Louisville area. Puff

scribbled:

I just paid $6.95 Canadian (about $5.80 US) for perfectly clear and straight S2S red oak *in the Yukon*, mostly 7 & 8-inch wide boards. Excepting our Alaskan neighbours, that's as far as you can get in North America from where red oak grows.
