20 year ago I bought 100 oversize sets of IRW -- sides 5 x 34, backs 8-5/8 x 21. To my eye, these are top grade--totally straight and vertical grain. I am really only interested in classicals and it seems a waste to cut these down to size, so I want to sell some of these off in bulk. They are bundled in sets of 20, so I will sell off the first 20 as one unit. I see these advertised for $115 to $200 per set for individual sets. I want to sell a bundle of 20 at $100 per set ($2000), plus tax, shipping, etc. If anyone is really interested, I could send photos directly. I always have trouble trying to load photos to OLF. I am not going to bother taking photos unless there is some real interest. Also, I will not separate a bundle, or that would cost $200 per set, but I am not really in the wood business and I don't want to start. I am located near Lansing, Michigan.

Thanks.

Thanks,

This would be best posted in the Classifieds.

Being unfamiliar with bulk shipping, it will take me awhile to research. Can anyone suggest a likely best shipper, eg. USPS, UPS, FedEx?

I am registered for classifieds, but I really did not expect a bulk buyer to be scanning through that.

PS I am not planning on selling off all 100 sets right now. I will work on the two contacts for a total of 40 sets. Even though I hate to cut these sets down, I probably cannot replace them with classical size of the same quality, so I might keep some for myself.

If you change your mind about the size of the minimum order, let me know. I could handle 4 or 5 at a time, but not 20.

Anyone who buys these sets of wood should pay Lance for the cost of “Classifed”. This is against his rules.
