I'm going this Saturday, to visit a mill owned (in partnership) by a former co-worker, hoping to acquire a pickup load of $4/bf walnut. Wish me luck!

Shouldn't need it. $4 a bf for even crappy walnut isn't a bad price so as long as it's 1 step above dog barf you should be getting a fair deal.

The 90/70+ and 90/50+ numbers refer to the grade of the lumber. They mean that at least 90% of one side of both the front and back of the boards is free of flaws, and at least 70% or 50% of the other side is free of flaws.
