What's the present cost on a sheet of MDF?
Reason I'm asking, I have connections to various species of wood products and sometimes deals pop up you can't refuse not to take notice. Always run into someone trying to unload product, blems etc. If your interested in a certain wood species from Pacific Northwest, quite possible I can find huge savings!
For example, all the Knotty Alder in our house was worth $20,000 on open market but found a mill/warehouse shutting down and pickup up and stored trim wood and paid $5,000 for the lot! Sure, pain in butt to store for 6-8 months, but came out like a bandit.
Heck, our Australian Cypress cost me a fraction of retail, like 20%! Once again stock wasn't moving and were discontinuing selling wood imports so I bought all their stock on hand........1600 sf.
Now I'm not a wood products retailer, I just help organize, harvest, sell our families raw saw logs to mills.......but have acquired lots of contacts, friends in business and usually have first hand knowledge of killer deals. Just saying..........and can keep an eye open.
