Hello, I have a collection of boards I’ve amassed over the years, and I am looking to pare it down to both make some space and generate some extra cash. The majority are imported species, and most are figured as well. I have had most for over 5 years, and have not had opportunities to utilize much of it.
I primarily make jewelry boxes that require 4/4 material, so most of what I have is either rough 4/4 or surfaced to 13/16” or thereabouts. I do have some thicker material though: 5/4, 6/4 and 8/4. Also some 3”x3” Sapele. The majority of this is in board form, mostly 5-9’ in length and some up to 28” wide. All quality woods, kiln dried, mostly imported, mostly figured (curly, pommelle, etc.).
I would prefer selling pieces as a whole locally, but have no problem cutting them up and shipping them out.
Here is a partial list of what I have:

Curly Genuine Mahogany (swietenia macrophylla)
Pommele Sapele
Bubinga, light beeswing/mottle
Curly African Mahogany
Spanish Cedar, some plain and figured
Curly Peruvian Walnut/Nogal
Cumaru (Brazilian Teak)

I’m located in the Boston area. I’d love to hear if there is interest in posting a full list with sizes/species. Thanks, Nate

Mike, here are prices. Let me know if you want pictures of anything.
Curly Genuine Mahogany I am asking $22/BF. I have 4 boards left in the range of 5-6” wide and all 7’ long.
Pommelle Sapele I am firm at $65/BF. I just have one board left: 21” wide x 8’ long (14BF = $900). It is figured through and through. I sold all the other pieces I had (that were actually narrower) for $70-75/BF.
The 3×3 Sapele I am asking $4.00/LF (approx $5.30/BF).
Thank you, Nate
