Nice haul Tod. Are those just planed once on each side when you get them?

Looks nice and clean tod. Did you pay much of a premium to get width like that?
I've got to get some wide 4/4 white oak next week. Hope my lumber supplier has something at least similar to that or I'm gonna be stuck edge glueing some 12'+ lengths of narrower stuff.

this is all for that same house i`ve been working on, it`s not been planed, straight out of the kiln, the cost for wide/long is 27 cents higher than plain ol` fas ....at the wholesale level.

What would be interesting would be a survey of some wood prices by some list of typical wood species and sizes. I would be interested for example on what someone pays for 4/4 Alder per board foot in the different regions of the country. Of course it would probably have to be better defined so that you were matching apples to apples. Max width, skip planed or not, etc. You could come up with standard list which people could contribute their input.
I can tell up that in Western Washington there is a large difference in price depending upon where you are at. Living in Bellingham there is only Windsor Plywood (a Canadian corporation) that sells hardwood. Their prices are so high compared to Crosscut Lumber (what a place!!) in Seattle. If I am buying any hardwood, I almost always need to drive to Seattle to get it, even at these high gas prices.
hey bill, for what it is worth i pay 3.15 bdft for superior alder, hardly any knots, that is straighlined one side and surfaced to 13/16.
that is considered an expensive wood by most around here.
what do you pay for alder?
ps. that is wholesale price at about 300-400 bdft at a time
