Board-of-the-Month

   Lumber Manager

 

The lumber department has recently acquired a large quantity of cherry, walnut and soft maple ( aka ambrosia ) that is 2 1/2 to 4 inches thick depending on the wood species.

We have over 200 board feet of cherry 4 inches thick 11 inches wide and 5 feet long selling for $7.25 a board foot. We have 44 board feet of ambrosia 4 inches thick 13 inches wide and 5 feet long selling for $7.25 a board foot. We also have over 300 board feet of walnut 2 1/2 inches thick 20 inches wide and 8 feet long selling for $12 a board foot.

Most of this Lumber currently resides at the Brownwood location but can be transferred to rolling acres based upon demand.

We recently acquired 600 board feet of cherry shorts (S3S 13/16" 5"-12" wide and 6'-7' long) which are selling for about $3.75 a board foot or roughly 1/2 of the cost per board foot of the standard rough 4/4 8 foot board. (This is cheaper than poplar which is selling for $4 bd ft)

In addition, we have about 50 board feet of cherry shorts at each location selling for about half price.
