    Any demand for White Pine

    well i have been asked if i want a large white pine, its 24"plus wide and over 20 ft Long. so my question is, is there any demand for slabs or lumber or turning blanks from pine? and if so what and how much is it worth.

    24" on the butt end is kinda scrawny for slabs. But it would make some good flooring the last batch I got was 17" wide X16 feet long and cost $70.00 a board.
    A quick look around and it seems that an 25" wide 8/4 X 8 foot is going for between $250.00 and $350.00
    It could be worse You could be on fire.

    I've never enjoyed turning pine myself, but I have heard of others doing it. Looks like if you take it over to Chuck's area you could pay for the gas for the trip. Almost makes it a free trip...

    Yes the boards where kiln dried. As for driving that twig to NH and making gas money back not so much.

    thats kinda how i saw it chuck,, first off you need to get it cut up, then dried so your looking at 250.00 in cost before you sell it..
