Topic tags/keywords: hardwood ohio cleveland price buying

Looking for some insight on what hardwood prices should be from independent dealers (craigslisters or similar) or from other places like Kencraft, Keim, Bell Forest, etc. I have attached current pricing from Woodcraft in CLE and I know they are high, but just how high, 20% higher than what is typical? If there is such a thing as typical. Just like to know when purchasing lumber if I am getting a decent price or if I should negotiate prices when applicable.

For comparison, here are some prices from my local saw mill (4/4, flat sawn):

  • Cherry $3.10
  • Hard maple $2.75
  • Poplar $2.00
  • Red oak $2.70
  • Walnut $6.00
  • White oak (quarter sawn) $5.00

Located in Southern Indiana. I imagine price should be pretty similar where you are.

Hi Terry,
Here are a couple of links to the places that I go to. Byler’s doesn’t have a price sheet on their website, but if you call with any questions they are more that happy to give you prices. Both places are a little farther out than Woodcraft, but well worth the drive. The slab room at Byler’s is worth the drive alone.

Hope that helps.

I’ve basically been relegated to mail-order lumber if I need anything beyond basic flat sawn stuff.

I’m getting several 100 bf of quarter sawn white oak from a mill in Xenia, Ohio.
Some of their “you pick it up” prices from their website

Have your say...
