well... I don't know about the $2.25, but I've spent considerably more than that plus high shipping from several different places. I like to try and replicate the region I'm imitating; so I get wood shipped in from all over. Being from the southwest I have 100lb shipments of post oak sent to me here in NY from a company in TX. That costs me roughly half of what I spend on a mixed cord here. Crazy? Maybe. Obsessed? Definitly.
