I'm a habitual peruser of the local swap sheets and Craigslist and
just picked up 325 bdft. of hard maple for $292.50. That'll make a
couple small side jobs a bit more profitable. It's really very nice
too - rough cut at 1.125" and sold as 4/4, 8-10' lengths, kiln dried
and no knots. Amazing, really. I'm pretty psyched.
