The wider and longer the 2X is the more it's worth. What do you have?

Really depends on the lumber quality... around here most guys are getting around the $500/1000 bdft for decent rough grade 2x6@16ft...... bandsawn that is.....

I look at it as costs to supply logs verses sawing the customer's logs. $500 per 1000 bdft is typical for supply and saw, but $350 per 1000 bdft to saw customer's (consider condition of logs of course.)
Since I retired I really like work: It fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.

Great.  Thanks, guys.  $500-600 was what I was planning on, and it sounds like you agree.  I appreciate the help.
