no previous part Part 1 of Local Resources series Part 2: Herbine Hardwoods - Lucketts, VA »

So today on my way back from Winchester I stopped in at a new wood store in Berryville, VA which opened last week. They have a great selection of locally cut and dried lumber (Cherry, Oak, Ash, Walnut, Cedar, and Popular among others) and their prices are very competitive and in most cases less than other shops in the area. The owner is knowledgeable and a very friendly guy that is looking to cater to local woodworkers. Check them out at http://www.localwoodva.com. While there I was able to pick up some 8/4 cherry to make legs for a file cabinet to match the desk I made last week. Over the next couple weeks I will be blogging about some other local resources to help NOVA woodworkers out.

On their webpage the address is miss-spelled (Kimball and not Kimble), so it does not show up in google maps. Here is a link to the google maps location.

Thanks for posting the info Brad. I look forward to more in this series on local resources as I’m just starting out with woodworking. Any advice on how to find “Local Wood”? Google maps doesn’t know the address…

I am moving to the Northern Neck of Virginia in June and will be looking forward to your posts on good wood finds in that area. I’ll be living about 30 mins east of Fredricksburg if anyone knows the area.

Brad, Thanks for the heads up. I will have to check these guys out. Look forward to any other local resources. My main one is the folks at Leesburg Woodcraft.

To find some occosional good buys on stuff to rehab or recycle there is the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store in Purcellville.

I am in the finishing stages of a cherry coffee table using stock that Scott Carpenter of Local Wood picked out for me. The place is a wonderful find and has a marvelous selection of lumber. Scott is a wonderful source of knowledge and wisdom if you need a third person’s suggestions.

I highly recommend these folks. And by the way they are having a Grand Opening bash on 11 September. Be there!

I found Local Wood in August of 2011 and have been getting my lumber there since. Scott Carpenter is a real nice guy and will go out of his way to assist you. If you live in the area check them out, they have a great selection of domestic woods local to VA.
