They look great. So you mill them to order then air dry them for the customer? How long is the delivery time?
I'm impresssed that I'm not seeing checking when sawing that thick. How are you managing that? Last time I tried that thick I got all kinds of cracks when air drying. Anchorsealing the ends, but what about the faces? Is it because they lay for a year before you saw them?
I have tried to develop a consistent pricing methodology. I take the 4/4 price for a species, like red oak, and double the 4/4 bf price for a 16/4 mantel. So if I am selling kiln dried red oak for $4.50/bf, the 4" thick mantel beam will cost you $9.00/bf. That is still a very good deal for a customer that wants a unique, custom mantel.
You guys must have better logs. I just cut these 4 or 5 days ago and if I look closely I can already start to see some slight drying cracks. Maybe I should have used more Anchorseal.
