I had a good amount of wood milled in January. I have some time to do woodworking but not enough to get to all the wood that I have. I have black walnut, oak, and honey locust slabs. I am just wondering what the best way to sell it is so I don’t let it go to waste. I am located in Nebraska. Sorry if a post like this is not allowed. Thanks in advance!

Mitchell,

Have you tried listing on Craigslist? If you were closer, I’d certainly be interested. Shipping would be prohibitive.

The two that I can think of is ‘Craigs List’ and or ‘Facebook Marketplace’. I don’t check out things on ‘Craigs List’, but I do check out ‘Facebook Marketplace’ from time to time. Nebraska is 455 miles long on I-80. Are you on the east or west end.

Man, I wish you were a lot closer to California. I wonder if there are retailers near you that would buy your wood? You’d get less money, but it would be better than running it through the fireplace.

Yeah that’s the tough thing about it. We have yet to find a certified place that will kiln dry it. So that knocks out all out of state
