    Thank you, George. I just saw someone list a bunch of large timbers on Craigslist recently. It was maple, oak and something else that had been used for crating goods from Europe. Not sure if I want to investigate that for spilled liquids or hidden hardware.
    Yes, I've been to Meridith and Son's and I don't find anything there that I can't find at the big box stores. Maybe, I don't know what I'm looking for, so will return for a new lesson. LOL

    Again, thank you for taking the time to respond and share your information. Hope to see you around and if I can be of help, please feel free to contact me.

    Good morning. I am just 50 miles east of you in the Ft Walton Beach area.

    Not much for wood sources in this area. Gatlin Lumber usually has a limited supply of several different hardwoods.

    In Pensacola you have two or three lumberyards that carry hardwoods. I have found several small mills that advertise in Craigslist. Have not yet bought any from them, however I do copy their adds if my need ever arises.

    Have you tried Meredith and Sons. They have a location in P'cola and between there and Navarre. There used to be a place not far from Joe Patty's. Just down the tracks west.

    Good luck on your wood finding.

    George
