  • Very Expensive Wood!!!

    Hi All,

    I came across this group of pics at Rockler, which is selling this stuff at ~$60.00/bf. The size of the tree is astounding as is the grain figure in the resulting boards. My local mill has this wood in dressed form (MUCH smaller and not as figured) for ~$9.00/bf, but still...

    PS...It might be fun to calculate what all the wood from this tree would be worth....

    Wood Magazine has an entire article on that very wood in this month's issue. One of the woodworkers made an amazing table from one of the slabs. It's really beautiful stuff. Even a small amount of that could go far in small projects if you resaw and use it for inlays.
    I put it all back together better than before. There\'s lots of leftover parts.

      I saw that article in a Woodworkers Journal and was curious about the price - yikes. Sure would be neat to use though in the right project.

        I think I read somewhere that Rockler paid $200,000 for the log.
