I think the best place would be the one that has the best quality at the cheapest price.

Probably somewhere on the West Coast, but knowing some of the mills around here I would want to see it before I had it shipped to me.

what size is the end?

If it's a 3/4" square you can rip them from 3/4" Cedar boards from the lumber yard or a Home Depot. They will tend to curve every which way when you cut them ...at least in my experience. You are building the "log cabin" bird houses...right? Those also show the corners are rounded off a bit, a nice job for a router table with a round over bit.

If it's at all possible to make them yourself, that's what I would do. To purchase them that way may prove quite expensive because of the number of passes to get each stick cut and rounded off....5, if my guess is correct.

I would also start with 1 X 10's about 3 or 4 ft long. Much longer than that and I think they will curve too much, but you could try.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

I have made a few loghouse birdhouses, these are just 4 of them. On two of them I rounded the logs on the router table, and the others I left square. The logs are 9/16's" sq. They just turned out that way, lol. The wood used was all scraps I have laying around. Cedar, oak, cherry, walnut and pi,,,,pi,,,,can't say that word. So I used fir.

Oh, cedar wood! Good choice! It really has fantastic features such as stands up to moisture, resisting rot and resisting insect damage better than other woods. But, I'm not sure, actually, I can point out the right place where you can buy it. Hard to say. Did you check the internet recources? The best conditions are less price and high quality, of course.
