My price for framing is by the board foot, the same amount as any other flat sawing.   I believe that others' on the forum also charge the same.   I can't help you with the
dry ,and dressed
   I don't think anyone would want to pay my price for kiln drying and planing 2x stock. ;D

 I didn't see in your message if you were furnishing the logs or he. If You are then if you want the job, you will have to be a reasonable about cheaper than Lowes or your lumber yard or I would think your customer will get his lumber from them. When I was in Lowes recently their framing lumber was averaging around $600 per thousand bf. So How much Cheaper do you want to be than them? If your Customer is furnishing the logs-------then You will have to be even cheaper. Its Hard to compete with a Big Operation. Me personally------I am not set-up to Dress lumber, so I wouldn't even try. If I had a source that wanted to buy 1000's of BF a week of hardwood Dressed  like Oak, poplar etc. I might get set-up. You ever priced a 8" x8ft oak or poplar from Lowes-------------------Its Gold. My Opinion is there is not ALOT of money for the time it takes in cutting, stacking, then drying, then dressing, Framing material, but if you got the equipment, then you might as well use it. Make some bucks!! Randy
