So, let's see, 4.3 BF solid spruce, sanded (not scraped?), and topped with some oil 200 EU is what, ~$261.50 USD (per http://www.xe.com/ucc/convert.cgi ) So, that's $60.68 / BF. Folks, we are all wasting our time making things like high-boy secretaries, Arts & Crafts cabinets, or other items requiring intricate joinery -- we could be selling spruce panels for more than we would ever get from any piece of furniture. Absolutely amazing.
Note also the comment on the page: "Attention: This product is currently not available due to manufacture capacity limitations." Looks like the potential exists here to expand his manufacturing capacity. :-)
For that price, I don't mind throwing in some mounting hardware, or even pre-drilling a few holes.
