it was 9.09 a couple weeks ago when I was at menards the birch plywood was 60 a sheet I do like the smart phone when I can stand in the isle at menards and check the home depot price , it is only about 5 minutes over to HD from menards HD was still at 50 a sheet I went over there and bought my plywood for the boat saved 40 dollars which was quickly soaked up in other supplies

Wow, no wonder the Amish are busy with their mills here
. Talk to one a week ago and he said he could hardly keep up with the orders.

I remember someone saying lumber would start going down in April last fall. They didn't say what year. So I can't say they were wrong.

When the two train loads of osb they bought a month or two ago is gone, they will drastically increase their prices too. Local stores canít afford to gamble with the market the way it is, so they buy what they need for a few weeks to a month then have to restock at the increased level. What they and everyone that buys bulk supplies right now is afraid of is the market shutting down and being stuck with overinflated priced goods and not being able to get rid of the material. This is no fun for anyone, including lumberyard buyers like myself. I can assure you that the yards would much rather see normal pricing also. My guess is brokers in the game are making fortunes. Just my guess.

I work in a stud mill (8 and 9 ft 2 x3,2x4 and 2x6). They are making so much money they don't know how to spend it all. They were profitable at $300 per 1000 board feet. Now it is over $1000.

I operate a dowel mill, we make pressure treated fence posts. My rejects are bundled 50 per bundle, for $50.00. I'm selling those as fast as I put out to the road. Folks are building sheds, wood sheds, out buildings and such using round wood. 3, 4, 5, 6, inch diameter 7, 8, 10, 12 foot long. My costs per cord just went up due to diesel fuel costs.


your only allowed so many sunrises... I aim to see every one of them!

Log prices are starting to go up now but no where close to what you would think. Prices for parts and such are up like everything else. They have given the employees a couple thousand dollars each in bonuses( the first time in the thirty plus years I have worked there) and they are doing some upgrades on machinery but it is mostly pure profit. Our biggest problem is finding workers, starting wage is now $19 an hour with full benefits when you start. We are working six ten and one half hour shifts plus one or two Sunday's a month. Most of our lumber goes to Home Depot and we can't make enough.

Good saw logs were going for $850 a thousand here a couple of months back. Maybe higher now.
Lots of small acreage being cut.
Good saw logs are more like gold at present.
