This morning I was responding to an E mail inquiry for some clear utility cedar we have. The customer wanted specified lengths and in the end said, oh yeah and the boards need to be perfect.
This was a reminder to me of why I enjoy selling lumber products so much. I reminded him that if these boards were quote, unquote perfect they would be more like $6-$7 per board foot instead of $2.50. What I considered but did not mention was that even the $6 per foot boards would not be perfect for some or even most people when all facts are considered. The boards might be straight, tight and vertical grained, perfectly dried and of consistent color, perfectly surfaced and edged, but who can afford $6.00 per board foot. That is $100.00 for 2-10 foot 1×10 boards, not perfect for me at least.
