Where do you get your wood?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering where does everyone get their wood from.  The wife is wanting to start doing cutting boards and the like, so I am looking for different exotic woods to start making pieces.  Been to all the lumber stores around here and they don't have a lot and what they do have is a hefty price, so I was wondering does anyone have a secret place they get their's from that is not going to cost me an arm and a leg?

Exotics ain't cheap. Thin accent stripes will save you $.

Here's where I order mine from.

They ship anywhere. Good people and very fair.

I'm fortunate to have a sawmill (albeit 70 miles one way) that specializes in quarter sawn domestic woods and carry a small selection of exotics as well. But with exotics comes a price...they will be expensive. The link Gene provided is heralded by many and well worth trying.

of that old thin tung & grove 4''x that has a double stripe(ya kno like a router would make) down center & along each edge.  They sealed inside of ol'houses with this.

Most of the time I see/hear it called bead board...Extremely desirable in remodels today especially in homes in the South where it was mostly used. That's one of the items the house flippers don't go nuts on with their sledge hammers to remove...if it's painted Indigo Blue it commands a premium price.

 

Ya' must be doing something right Buck if folks just stop by to give you project wood...pretty nice score on that Pecan...only thing that would have made that better would have been a bucket of shelled pecans or even better a fresh, hot pecan pie.:P Don't ever think your wife has forgot about wanting that coffee table either...she hasn't!;)

I didn't even think to look for the sawmills.  Thank you.  Sorry it took me so long to respond, I never got any notifications that anyone replied.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
