I have seen several posts about great deals on wood. I hope I don't piss anyone off, but I beat your gloats quite often. LOL
How about some center slabs from a Veneer company? They slice the veneer off the logs and there is a 1"-11/4" slab left in the middle they can't use. Thousands of these slabs go to some company in Canada for $.01 lb every month. When they have a problem with one of thier cranes or hoists they call me. After fixing thier equipment, I get my choice of whatever pieces I want. The day i took this picture it was Cherry, Walnut, and White Oak. You can see by the carport and truck behind them as to the size of these slabs. Oh yeah, I don't even pay the penny a pound for them, all I want for free. Only down side is they do have to dry before using and that takes 8-10 months, but I have a nice rotating stock now so i have the wood i need for projects.

All you need is a bigger truck and shipping connections to spread the love. Awesome for you!

Well I'm jealous, that's for sure, but also happy for you at the same time. Sometimes bartering is a great way to do business.
