Teak Wood Available


Greetings! I have a supply of used tongue and groove teak (about 60-90 boards,approx 3"x3/4"x8')
Any idea what it might be worth? Anyone in the Allentown area interested? As much as this probabbly sounds like a commercial offer, it's really not the case... I have no use for it, need the space, and would like to see it go to someone who'll use it.
No reasonable offer refused.... But you have to pick it up!

Didn't somone post here a week ago or so looking for Teak in Philly area?? Depending on where that guy is, Allentown is not too far away.
Are there nail holes in the wood? are the tongues and grooves in good shape? Is there a surface finish? Was it used as flooring? Any holly go go with it?

Teak sells for a variety of prices depending on source, quantity, grade, etc. but figure $10- $15/bd. ft. You have between $1200 - $2400 worth discounting cutting off T&G.

Gee whiz, out here 90 mi. north from LA on the coast I can get teak for about $18 - $22 a BF or so, prices fluctuate here a lot. depends on where you are. You could run an add in any local free "recycler" type of paper, but competing upon realizing your local prices. "Used prices"... something to that effect.

To answer some of the questions:
The wood was used to pane the walls of a "hot tub room" (the tub itself was unused/empty for the past 4 years....)
The quantity listed has nail holes in two rows, on ONE side (It was nailed up as "panels" from the back, and the furring strips were attached.
Most pieces have a 3 inch rabbet <sp?> along the top, where they were fastened to the upper strip.
The quantity listed is the "good stuff". I have culled out the "junk" (about 25 percent of the total quantity). I still *have* the "less desireable" pieces, as well as a bunch of "short" (1-4 foot sections).
Overall, it's still very nice, and would probably wainscott <can you use that as a verb? <s>) an 8x10 room, give or take.
I figured it was worth somewhere around $2000, but I'd happily take less if someone wanted it.
And yes, Allentown is about 90 min from Philly, at worst. I'm actually on the south side of Allentown, right off the turnpike.

OOps.... To answer the last two questions, the T&G is in good condition (one in 25 pieces *may* have a split or other issue in the "groove" side). The wood does not seem to have been finished. It has a slightly rough surface (textured, maybe? or rustic?), But I took my No. 4 to a few of the smaller sections, and it smooths out nicely.
