For sale: 150 bf of Quarter Sawn Red Oak

150 bd ft of quarter sawn red oak, planed to 1" and all from one log.
  • The boards are all clear with no knots. A little mineral streaking on a few of the boards and a tiny amount of sapwood on the edge of a few boards.
  • Kiln dried and has been stored indoors for around 10 years.
  • The length of 21 bd ft is 51 inches and the remainder is 62 inches long (129 board ft).
  • Widths range from 2 to 10 inches with most being about 4-6 inches wide.
The ray fleck is very impressive on many boards and the curl is quite prominent throughout the boards.
$500 for the 150+ board feet. NOTE: I will NOT break up this stack of lumber because it came from a single butt log of a tree from Ohio.

For Sale: Wood for carving, various planks & veneer
