Stocking up material to make stuff for the upcoming woodworking shows. Did pretty good, I thought.
I got:
Walnut-4 bf.
Maple-4.5 bf
Purple Heart-2.3 bf
Ash-12 bf
All for around $77.

Time to make some sawdust.

Did I do good???

-- While teaching a class, a gentlemen once asked me: "When chip carving an intricate design, what do you do when you are almost finished and the wood breaks off?" I replied "Cover the kids ears."

Based on what I’m used to
walnut 6.00bf= 24.00
maple 4.50bf= 20.00
purpleheart 8.00bf= 19.00
Ash 2.50bf= 30.00
So I’d expect to pay about 93.00, might be a little less if it isn’t clear maple and more if figured, so seems like decent pricing to me.
