You might live in a forest however if you make your widow sash out of freshly milled green wood you will be asking for trouble. You would have to find a mill with a dry kiln in order to get some good wood to use immediately. It looks like you might be around 100 miles fro Louisville. Maybe there is a hardwood lumber company there that will deliver that far.

If you don't have anyone local, there's always online (http://www.woodworkerssource.com/Oak_White.html). I've personally never used them, but that may be your only choice.

Memphis Hardwood Lumber in Memphis NY has both 8/4 and 12/4 white oak in stock according to their inventory / price list on their web site. They do ship.

Note that they normally stock rough material that needs to be dressed to S4S.
