Wood Sources

Hi All,

Sometimes I just get tired of using pine and poplar and I know there are many other wood varieties out there. What I can't seem to find is a resource for S3S or S4S domestic hardwood lumber in my neck of the woods - New Jersey.

Anybody know of a source in New Jersey?

Thanks,
Denis

I am not in NJ so I don't have any specific advice, but I get 95% of my "good stuff" from a local cabinetmaker...not from a store. Do you have any cabinet shops nearby that you could contact? I also use the same cabinetmaker to smooth any glue-ups that I have with his big, stationary belt sander. Good, quality lumber and smooth perfectly flat panels...all for a modest price...is a great deal.

Hearne Hardwoods in PA, just the other side of Wilmington has some amazing stuff as does Groff and Groff.

IMHO, both are worth a trip.

Not sure where you're located, but Boards & Beams in the Fairfield/Pine Brook area has a big selection of hardwoods, although I've only bought quartersawn white oak from them. Their website has listings of species, available dimensions, & pricing.

Blue Ridge lumber in Hackettstown has a small selection of hardwoods. I've bought cherry & mahogany there, IIRC.

Also, Kuiken Brothers has a few species. I've gotten maple & mahogany from them at their Roxbury location.

Good luck!
