I’m not sure I understand how this works. Is the price set up so that you are bidding on the price per board foot? How will ebay know the total selling price of the auction unless you have the total board feet?

I think for clarity, ease of reaching a total price before pickup, and buyer/seller protection, it might be best to use the bid price to represent the price of the entire lot (even if it is just an estimate) instead of the price per board foot. Just my opinion though.

Hi, yes, that’s another way to offer this auction. My thinking was the buyer might want less than the total amount offered and might want to sort through the pile. The final price would have to be determined on site and therefore that’s why we wanted cash and offered the lumber at a “per board foot” price. If it doesnlt sell this way, I think I’ll try your option next week. Thanks.

i gotcha. i wish i was heading up to my parents in north jersey sometime soon. I’d love to stop by for some butternut, but unfortunately, I can’ justify a trip to buy lumber right now (plus i doubt I’d be able to take the volume necessary to make it worth your time). good luck. it sounds like someone is going to get a good deal.

Wow! I’ve been lookin for some cherry and maple. Hes not to far from me either if hes in Wayne County also, I’m in Pike County, real close to Milford. Does he have a number? Maybe he could give me a deal since I’m a member of Lumber Jocks? :p
