Can't help you. I've never bought wood online. I find what I need around here for free. Well if you don't count Gas for my truck, a $300 chain saw, gas and oil for those, hearing protectors, gloves and occasionally a sore back from lifting all those logs.
I would think for the most part anything that will fit on 12" lathes. Most people don't turn larger and most people don't have a lathe that will. Those who do have large lathes probably already have a chainsaw.

Check this site out before checking out other folks selling wood on E-bay.
http://www.turningblanks.net/servlet/StoreFront

Lot of pen turners been burnt by people on E-bay, selling pen blanks.
So buy pen blanks from other members of IAP and sources already listed.
