In the last week, I have been trying to find some redwood fence boards ton repair some of my fencing. Lowes and Home Despot are around $7.25 per board and it is utter garbage. Every board is at least 50% sapwood and there are huge knots. It is also very scarce. I was told that contractors are there waiting in the morning when they open, and they buy it all.
So I went over to a Big B Lumber. They had great looking wood, but is was $12-something a board (I don’t remember what the “something” was, but I think it was about $12.25). It was really nice looking stuff, and in hindsight I should have bought it then because 4 days later the same wood is $13.99 per board.

I don’t know if that’s total sarcasm or total stupidity.

This is much better than Home Depot’s lame excuse about equal pay for all trees.

My woodmizer saw mill should be ready for pick up in 3 weeks. I’ll just cut some of the dumb trees around me for now I guess. Lol
