Online Vendor for Exotic Woods

Hi All,

Does anyone have any recommendations for an online store that sells exotic wood boards (specifically by the board)? Has anyone had negative experiences, such as boards warping during shipping? Thank you.

I do not know if this place will ship but they do sell by the board.

Another forum member, Gideon, is a frequent visitor if you want to PM him for advise.

I had another link, but having trouble finding it at the moment.

Hearne has a minimum order for phone/mail order I think.

Try eBay. All sorts of stuff on there.

There's a great supplier in Carlsbad CA. The name is (I think) Tropical Hardwoods of Central America. I live nearby so I don't have to mail but I've done business with them many times and they have a great selection and are good to work with

Haven't bought from them yet but I am looking @ Pickels-Fine-Woods?_ Or try Rainier woods.

Learning to fix your mistake's is very time consuming

Have you tried 101woods.com? I bought some very nice cherry from them but they have anything I have ever heard of. Prices were good, delivery was fast. Customer service was good too.

Have you heard of these folks? They seem to have a special offering every week.
