Questions about Buying and Selling Wood

We paired up a couple of questions since they represented the yin and yang of wood commerce.

Buying: I live in central Florida, where the local suppliers seem to think that no one has a need for anything other than pressure-treated pine. I don’t want to pay the big box price for an 8′ piece of oak. Where can I find a good source for hardwoods & particularly rough boards? 

Selling: I recently came across a load of wood and would like to sell it. I am not a wholesaler, just a woodworker with more wood than room or time to use it all. Can you recommend an online site useful for posting details and pictures? 

Michael Dresdner: The answer to both questions is Woodfinder.com. This outstanding web site links wood sellers with wood buyers, allowing each to search or list by location, type of wood, and other parameters.
