Now that's interesting. I haven't been by the wood store in a year now for
assorted reasons, but the last time I bought walnut there, it was $4.70/bf,
and it had O'Shea Lumber Company on a piece of paper stapled to one of the

BZZZZZT! The prices quoted are 'per 1000 bd ft', *not* for the entire
inventory as a single lot.
The 8/4 poplar is $1.26/bd ft. ($1260/1000 bd ft.) 18M bd ft in stock
The 4/4 ash is $1.29/bd ft. ($1290/1000 bd ft.) 15M bd ft in stock
(For the 4/4 walnut they did not specify the quantity for the $2750 price, but,
given that _everything_else_ is priced 'per thousand bd ft', it _is_ fair
to assume that that is the way the walnut is priced, as well. Thus: )
The 4/4 walnut is $2.75/bd ft. ($2750/1000 bd ft.) 10M bd ft in stock.
You don't have to buy the entire inventory of any of those items, to
get the indicated pricing. minimum order is only 500 bd ft.
*OR* that one should learn how to read a price list. <grin>
Ron, I think you have a misconception about that table. The number in the
first column is the quantity they have on hand, the one in the third is the
price per thousand board feet. The price in the third column is _not_ for
the entire quantity in the first column.
Further, on another page of the site, they say that their minimum buy is 500
board feet, not "thousands".

after my last couple of trips to the borg, I was going to ask a
Are the hurricanes in the south what's raising plywood prices so
On my last 2 projects, both involving several shop drawers, I was
going to use 3/8" or 1/2" plywood for the drawer sides and backs
because it was the less expensive way to go..
On both projects, plywood had gone up so much, it was cheaper to buy
fairly nice quality Douglas Fir than it was to use pine plywood... wtf
is wrong with that picture??
I know that you're talking about REAL wood, but my budget and skill
level doesn't allow that yet..
The big factor seems to be the increasing worldwide demand for
plywood. I stumbled on a site that tracked world lumber consumption by
country or area on a monthly basis and the current report indicated
supplies are tight and prices firm to rising in all areas.
(Unfortunately I didn't bookmark the site.)
You can tell a really good idea by the enemies it makes
Er, I think I was feeling a bit depressed when I sent that to the NG.
Late on a cold, dull gray afternoon is bad for me.
Also, I do have a fixed income, and my ideas often far outstrip my
resources.Lastly but not leastly, I am feeling myself beginning to
slow down from being 62. Memory and shoulders both. I could throw un a
few more but who needs to read all that negative stuff- maybe more
inventiveness will come of this?
So I emitted a carp and got my response.
