Alright, im sure everybody is no stranger to my lumber postings in the marketplace. I made my second and final trip to the warehouse yesterday, and still was unable to transport all the material. I wont be heading back up this week, so that means somebody else in the area can grab it, or it will be tossed/burned. It would be a shame to see the latter happen, so I am offering this for what I paid in the auction, which is very little for the sheer volume.

$250 for all three lots. $150 for the oak lot, $150 for the hardwood trim lot, and $100 for the primed hardwood trim lot. You paypal me the money, and I send you the invoice for you to go pick up your items. YOU HAVE TO PICK IT UP BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON. You are able to back your vehicle up through a dock door right up to the material. It is pretty simple loading. The photos might be deceiving, but this would fill a boxtruck or 16’ trailer for all 3 lots. The oak is 10-12’ long and 36” wide. Eyeballing it would say there is 300+ bdft there. So much moulding, so so much moulding.

You might have a better chance of selling the lumber if you tell us where it is located.

Ah of course, thought I had mentioned that. Thank you for the reminder, Julian.

It is located in Brook Park, OH. South of Cleveland.

The wiser thing to do is to put the extra effort into retrieving the lots yourself, then selling them from your home base. Just my thought.

I would do that, but that requires another vacation day on my behalf. One, I would have to come up with a damn good reason for me to take a short notice vacation day tomorrow or Friday. Two, I am out of vacation if I still intend to take a trip in October(already booked) and if I want time off for Christmas. For me, it is a case of not having the time to do it. I originally thought this establishment would allow weekend pick ups, and that is why I placed the bids. After my check was in the mail, I found out that they did not. Threw an enormous wrench into the system, but I was able to get 2/3rds of what I purchase. This final third would be nice to have, because it has a nice price value to it, but I just wont be able to go get it. I have a retired friend who is considering making the drive, but I wanted to put this out to the general community. $250 doesn’t cover what I paid for it at auction, and I was the only one to place a bid on them. It is a dirt cheap offer, and I would rather see another guy make something of the material, or make a buck off it, than to have it thrown away. Would it be nice to put another $250 in my pocket? heck yes. However, it sorta doesn’t matter to me, because I am profiting a fair amount off the other lots I purchased and picked up.

This is more about helping another woodworker out and keeping good lumber out of a landfill!

How much did you say you wanted?

Yep, you are missing the oak lot, but those are the other two. The invoices come out to be $315. You get whacked with Ohio sales tax and a buyer’s premium of 15/20% through the auction house. I’m asking $250, but if you think that is outrageous you can throw a number at me. Thanks for looking, if you are in the area, it is absolutely worth it.
