Glad you are happy with the OSB. Somebody else is going to be unhappy with the open window.

I went to the lumber yard today to buy some heavy oak for a cannon carriage.
I really see no difference in pricing from a year ago with the oak.
2" thick red oak was $4.55 per board foot. That is a little less than I paid for it several months ago.

No real difference in oak pricing but huge difference in 2" X 4" and plywood.
It clearly is supply and demand.

Everyone uses 2" X 4" and plywood to work on there house but very few use 2" thick oak.
I bought 2 1/2" thick oak today at $7.85 per board foot.
That has been normal for boards that thick for years.

My buddy is a builder and he tod me of the horror stories of construction lumber. As far as hardwoods, I bought some hickory for some cabinets for my cottage several years ago and Paid $4.00 bd ft. I needed a few mor boards od hickory to finish the joband paid $4.50, so from what I see here in Southeast PA, Hardwood prices not up very much. Thankfully.

I had to buy some Baltic birch cabinet grade plywood to make some cabinets for the daughter. The price was up 5 % from last year. The price of sheeting grade fir plywood was over four times last years price! You can actually buy Baltic Birch cabinet grade plywood far cheaper than sheeting grade plywood.So when will people start using it instead?
