    RE Price for Quarter sawn white Oak

    Ok so I saw a bundle of wood at a local shop that is closed down today and now have itchy feet.

    What would you say is a real good price and I mean bargain price to pay for quarter sawn white oak on a per board ft basis buying around 600df foot in excellent condition in fact most of it is finished two sides.

    Need help pushing myself over the edge, I just love qrt sawn oak.

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    Good looking 5/4 QSWO is about $7.20/bf in small quantity SoCal. Price goes up for thicker. I've never price a few hundred bf at a time but would expect the price to be better (but certainly not half).

    I can get 4/4 for around 5 per board foot. A "I just can't pass this up" price would be half that.
