    QS oak haul

    Frank Miller Lumber in IN. They call it select or better, but some with knots which is not select, correct? Good value though $5.42/board ft. Local Indianapolis guys want $9.50/board ft.

    Honestly $5/bdft sounds a little high honestly. Guess it is QS.

    That's a good price for 8/4.

    Just looked at a few local venders in PA for pricing and I think you did good.

    Hardwood grading is based on the size and number of pieces that can be cut from the board. To meet grade, Sel and Better requires 83.3% of the board have a clear surface. https://www.woodworkerssource.com/ha...er-grades.html

    QSWO makes a wonderful bedroom furniture look IMHO. I think you did good and will enjoy the result. Congrats!
