    Yes- I watch this all the time- almost never near me. veneer is in sq. ft and lumber is in bd. ft. These folks know
    the difference.

    The prices are unquestionably veneer prices and of course Mike has it right about the bf vs sqft

    Best way to learn is to do. I got excited about same ad, until it dawned on me what they were selling. My guess that info omission in ad is by no means accidental.

    I bought some stuff from an online auction awhile back. I thought they were the rubber feet I use on my cutting boards. Same manufacturer, same packaging, etc. Turned out to be the caps you put on metal chairs, etc. A lot of useless crap for me.....

    On a note from my above post .. I'm banned from bidding through them ... last thing I won was a 36in wide belt sander .. had it crated and shipped .. when I got it .. it had magically turned into a 24" drum sander .. I wouldn't accept shipment .. was told there was a mistake made by riggers/packers and they didn't know who got my sander .. but expected me to accept the one they shipped... said because it was an auction there was a no rerurn policy ... needless to say I got a little upset .. wouldn't take it off truck ... refused to sign paperwork...
    had to threaten to take all the info to my lawyer with all pics ... they reluctantly gave my money back and banned me from buying anything else ... worked for me ..
