I have two Sycamore logs slabbed and available for sale or trade. Both are Flitch cut and ends sealed with Anchor seal.
The first log is 78” long and 24” wide and each slab is 3” thick. All slabs on the first log have one natural edge and one straight edge. There are 6 full slabs and 4 half lenght slabs approx. 250 bf in the first log. The second log is 96” long and all slabs have both natural edges. This log is also Flitch cut and 3” thick and approx. 260 bf. Both trees show great Ray and Fleck and were cut in Feb. 2010 and are partially dry. These are the last of 5 trees harvested within two weeks and all were about the same size. The other 3 trees were shorter and wider and were sold first, for $10 per bf plus shipping. I am looking for $7.00 to $8.00 per bf in trade and am looking for a large wood lathe, unisaw, wide planer, portable sawmill, or exceptional wood (ie Ebony, Tiger Maple, Sapele Koa, Mesquite Burl, Box Elder, Old Teak, Mahogany, Rosewood, or any other unique and turnable wood). For the right deal I will deliver or pay shipping both ways. You can contact me through LJ as FordMike, or my business e-mail [email protected]

Have you checked the prices on the web for fully quartersawn sycamore that is kiln-dried. It might be helpful

I see you are in Santa Rosa. We lived there from ‘92 to ‘95. We loved it. If I were still in Santa Rosa, I would buy your sycamore in a minute. I think sycamore, especially quartersawn, is a great wood.

I live in Iowa now and the shipping cost would be prohibitive.
