How much to pay for lumber?
I have used pine wood for most all my projects (small craft type) over the years with the exception of small turnings on the lathe. I have always just gone to my local Menards store and picked out each board by hand. I saw an ad on my local Craigslist that says he has a large variety of kiln dried hardwood lumber planed to 3/4" for $3.00 per BF. Is this about right or not? I emailed him about cutoffs but he replied he had none. Sounds like all species is same price. I want to try some Cherry and Maple and ...well...who knows what else.
