For whatever reason the two shelve loads of the two foot pieces came out sideways, but you get the message. What I would do with those is plane and joint them, then rip them into about 1 1/4 inch strips. Then glue them up and make cutting board blanks that by the time I planed and sanded them were 1 inch thick. Then I would cut them into various shapes with my CNC and sell them for about $75 each. There’s probably enough wood there for at least 100 cutting boards? $7500 worth! I’d sell both shelve loads for $500.

What are you asking for the lot?

I can’t send a pm because I just joined and don’t have any posts! I suppose this the first one

Anyway let me know. I’m not too far away in Los Altos

Thanks,

Dennis

Thanks for the interest, I just went over and measured it all so let me figure out the board feet and then I’ll check on retail prices and figure out how much I want for it all. It will be way less than retail, but I kind of want to know the retail price before I commit.

I’ll go in order of who responded here as for who gets first crack at it. Greg D is first on the list and he also sent a PM. So he’ll get first right of refusal. I have a few other things I have to get done this afternoon, but I’ll get back on this within a few hours.

Okay here’s the deal, the measurements are just estimates but they should be pretty close. On the stacked lumber it appears I have about 224 BF of Walnut, 108 BF of Cherry, 144 BF of Jatoba, and 80 BF of White Oak. MacBeath hardwoods has retail online prices at $11 a BF for walnut, $7.80 for cherry, $9.40 for Jatoba, and $5.25 for white oak. So McBeath retail would be $2,464 for the walnut, $842 for the Cherry, $1,353 for the Jatoba, and $420 for the white oak. So that’s a grand total of $5080.00 retail value and I’ve bought wood from MacBeath before and this wood is consistent with what they sell.

So given the over $5000 retail price, I’ll sell all four stacks of the lumber for $2,000 and then all the 2’ thin cut pieces for $500. The 2’ pieces are not included in the above BF numbers. So $2500 takes all, or I’ll do two transactions if somebody doesn’t want both.

On edit: Even better yet, $2250 takes all, or $2,000 for the long pieces and $500 for the 2’ cut pieces if done in different transactions.
