In that case... go to one of the big box lumber stores and ask if they have any damaged or warped lumber. I've often got short pieces out of a broken board for pennies on the dollar.
Better yet, if there happens to be any construction projects going on in your area, stop by and ask for discarded lumber. I've scavenged (with permission) enough stuff from several of those to literally build a house! (for FREE!)
