contact Daren Just check out his website and try and argue that you can't get good wood from the dude. Good wood is all he sells.
Thanks Kevin, I could not have said it better myself
. I am getting in the same boat you are in (not quite as bad) more customers than wood right now...but I ain't complaining.
The real reason I chimed in was to link another thread here. I think local lumber suppliers are far
too over looked. Partially for the reasons mentioned in the thread, I don't advertise. I think I remember TexasTimbers saying he had to take his sign down on the highway cause the customers had his lane wore plum out (that is what happens when a sawmill has good wood)
In this thread I show another member he is virtually surrounded by hardwood suppliers...you don't have to buy that overpriced stuff from those catalogs/internet (like was mentioned in this thread, sigh unseen
) Or from some pimple face kid at the "Big Box" who doesn't know ash from a hole in the ground.
Please if you are looking for good wood take the time to read this thread, I get to the point near the end of the posting. The exact thing holds true for you, I would bet my mill...you are surrounded by better places to buy lumber. Not that I have anything against the company you are asking about. I just think you need to know your options. http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1529
