Vienna hardwoods is a great local resource for finding wood. They have a ton of wood jammed into a small space and carry all the normal domestics along with some exotics here and there. They also have a ton of shorts and scraps hidden in corners. For example last time I was there they had several large mahogany crotch veneer core panels (52×36 x 1.25) that I grabbed to use as a table top. Check out there website http://www.viennahardwood.com/ and stop in and check out their stock. The owner is a nice guy that is always open to having someone look around.
