Cost of a 2x4x8 KD stud went up 59% from July 27 to September 25... I will have to find some invoices from February...

I just paid $10.50 for a 2x4x10. But when you think about the current state of this country it makes sense. Hurricanes and wildfires has upped demand and probably shrunk production capacity

So these are my costs, with my 10% discount:

2x4x8 KD WSPF premium stud

12/11/19 $4.38
7/27/20 $5.18
9/25/20 $8.24

That is an 88% increase since December....

I just had a client ask for a comparison of Siberian Larch to Pressure treated southern yellow pine
A buck cheaper per piece, though both were expensive

im at my folks' house. gotta check the basement, but I think i may have Mason jars. Not sure what size, but some new some old. They made beach plum jelly. Got some from 2010 down there I haven't tried yet. Anyway, I'll check and they're yours if you want. Wood; I got scraps nothing more. And a 2 year old alpha male boxer needs to go somewhere with a fencened in yard to a good home.

Thanks for the offer, Jimbo. I was going to get the jars for a client who helped with my harvest. I went another route and have scratched that itch. If I grow again, I will subcontract the harvest process.....
