Got myself a mega haul. About 10 pallets of european oak, sapele, iroko and a bit of redwood.

To give you an idea of what I'm talking about, the timber ranges from 50mm x 75mm to smaller bits at 20 x 50mm, in lengths between 4ft and 8ft. There is a bit of oak tongue and groove too. All PAR.

I can't use all this myself. Splitting some with a friend but still too much. I'm thinking of selling a bit here or on eBay. What kind of value are we talking per square foot?

The other day I was offered some Brown Oak, 4" thick and 2" thick. 10 Years old and it was offered at £50.00 a cube, to clear. That's berry berry good! It wasn't long enough for my purposes, and I have nowhere to store what I ain't using! So I had to pass.

At my usual supplier I have to pay upwards of £45.00 for English Oak, 1.25" thick.
Through the trade Oak is classed as medium priced
Iroko as low priced
Sapele as low priced.

Thanks, luckily I didn't pay anywhere near £45 for the oak!

Oh well, I don't live near to a forest! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I reckon £45.00 is reasonable for good English Oak. I just need enough for a dining suite. (Sans sideboard)

So I reckon £250.00 will cover it with some left over!
Leaving aside the labour, where could I buy a table and six chairs for that price? (Unless I buy rubbish flat-pack.)

Custard,

4 and 5 foot lengths. I need 7 footers at least for a dining table. There were some among the lot, but they had gone ! I probably could have used it for legs, and cross stretchers, but I want to make the selection from the same bole if possible.

Just my luck. Looks like I'll be using ordinary oak.. (Well as ordinary as oak ever is.) :)
