    Good deal on some lumber

    "Cherry Lumber Kiln dried, random lengths and widths, l00 bd ft minimum, thickness is l l/8 inches, grade is select real nice cherry. I have other lumber available, Ash l.00, Maple l.00, Hickory l.00, Poplar l.00 Red Elm Real nice l.l0, etc. All lumber priced at l.OO is l2 % moisture content."

    Looks to be a great deal. Usually pay around $3.50 for cherry. Plus the stickered lumber is a great deal also. Will be going to take a look at it Thursday morning.
    What do you pay for cherry in your area?

    4/4 cherry at 100 bf price is 5.50 at Northwest Lumber website. They are high but have good materials and the widest selection I know of in Indy.

    That's a great price. The last cherry I bought (granted, it was a single S4S board at Rockler) was about $8.00/bf as I recall.

    I pay about $4.50/bf for select and $2.15/bf for common. There is more waste with common but the character of the wood is much better in my opinion.
