Looking for some help pricing some lumber I have. I've got a decent amount of good sized, rough sawn boards of Sapele and african mahogany. I also have some smaller, already planed boards of same species and a few boards of zebrawood. I have bitten off more than I can chew with the amount I have (need the storage space back for other species). Would like some help on how to price this stuff by board foot or otherwise.

I would start my research at The Hardwood Store and/or Wall Lumber. This will give you an idea of their prices. Depending on availability in your area, you might be able to offer your wood at a premium or you might have to offer it at a discount in order to get rid of it on your schedule.

Thanks Steve, I checked the only local place that I know of that sells the stuff, found similar Sapele at around $6.50 a bf, but the zebrawood and mahogany were no where near the same length/width and prices varied significantly due to this. Will check Wall lumber, thanks again.

The Hardwood Store has Sapele, S.A. Mahogany (South American which is pricier), and Zebrawood. Rough sawn lumber is priced in board feet and usually it's a little higher with widths greater than 10".

Here's a price list from Hearne Hardwoods. Most of their wood is FAS grade. African mahogany (4/4, $7/bf) and "genuine" mahogany is about $10.50/bf.

Capital City Lumber over by the NC State Fairgrounds is where I go to get exotic woods. Folks who work there are nice and helpful.
