The 96" Super Tall Legs price includes the FedEx "Oversize" charge.

I am having a hard time finding good quality lumber, what kind of lumber do you use? We understand that it is very difficult to find nice straight boards from home improvement stores. Most lumber yards cary construction grade and not furniture grade lumber. You need to sort through many boards just to find a few nice pieces. For your safety be very careful when sorting through a pile of lumber as it can easily fall down and never let children be around piles of stacked lumber. We use a special grade of Kiln-Dried Heat Treated Western Spruce from the Pacific Northwest which is specifically milled for us. Since Western Spruce grows in a cooler climate, it stays straighter and has fewer knots better than other wood species. Western Spruce is typically not available at most lumber yards or home improvement stores.
