best place for specialty woods

What is the best place to get specialty wood. Specifically spanish cedar. I know someone who is building a humidor cabinet.

[Insert your funny or clever message here]

Since a lot of Spanish cedar comes from Mexico, I would think you should be able to find some in San Antonio, Alamo Hardwoods, Collector specialty woods, Dakota hardwoods. Plenty of online dealers that will ship. I was at my hardwood supplier yesterday in Maine and they had a large stack of Spanish cedar, making humidors is very popular.

Houston Hardwoods or Clark's Hardwoods, both located in Houston. FYI, Houston Hardwoods is usually cheaper.

find somewhere local that carries exotic woods, they usually can order whatever you want, and much cheaper than online.

Mason's Mill in Houston is the biggest place here and should have everything. The have multiple where houses and carry rough lumber in 1/4 increments rather than just 4, 6, and 8/4. Nice to be able to buy 5/4 and not 6/4 when that is all you need.
