I am working on a do it yourself heart attack. Yesterday I went to a place advertising the cheapest teak in the states and check on the price of three two by fours, 26 inches long, and four each four by fours each 18 inches long. The price quoted wholesale was something over $200. I am accustomed to going down to the local lumber yard and getting kiln dried or air dried stock for $10 or thereabouts. Does shipping to the U.S. really cost that much. I know there's less than 6% import duty on it? I may have to make a trip back across at this rate.
