Hardwood near northern Virginia/Winchester

I'm relatively new to woodworking. I started about a year ago with a pine bed frame and I've completed a fair number of other projects out of pine as well. I recently made a table for a friend out of red oak and oak plywood. The places I found for hardwoods were Local Wood in Berryville, VA and C.P. Johnson Lumber in Elkwood, VA. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any other places with reasonable prices in the Winchester, VA area. C.P. Johnson has pretty reasonable prices, but it's an hour and a half drive to get there. Local Wood is ok, but their prices, in general, are much higher than C.P. Johnson [for example 4/4 Ash is $2.90/bf at C.P. and $3.80 at LW]. Any help would be much appreciated!

There used to be a place near Tysons Corners, that I think moved out near Dulles Airport called Colonial Hardwoods. Been over 20 years since I was there.

Hey Bill, I just bought some Ash about 2 months ago and seem like it was about $2.90 BF. Prices can change daily.

Thereís Exotic Lumber in Frederick MD.

Their other location in Annapolis MD is my go-to place for hardwoods and exotics.

I just checked out their website and they have a ton of species. They're a little more expensive than the other two places I know of, but if I ever need something more exotic I will definitely have to check them out. Thanks!

I also purchased from this fellow years ago. His specialty is curly maple for long rifle stocks, but he has other stuff too. In Chantilly VA (Wood for a long rifle stock is often 5 ft long, 2 inches thick and needs consistent curl the complete length. Very expensive, but desired for an heirloom quality build. It is not unusual for a long rifle builder to pay $300 for a prime piece of curly maple. That is probably about $30. a bd ft. )

Dunlap looks pretty good. I think I'll head over there in the near future to poke around. Looks like they have a pretty good selection. Thanks
