That was too short!! My favorite type of video. Too far away to visit so I really appreciate the views. I will check out their sites. You are one lucky woodworker and some nice projects also. There price list is from 2010. not great, but not too bad.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

I will have to give it a shot next time i’m out that way. I live in Takoma Park MD, so NOVA is a bit of a drive, on the not so friendly DC beltway :)
I usually go to Exotic Lumber in Gaithersburg MD. He has a great selection, prices are a touch high. Good deals on shorts (6 foot) if you buy 30bf.

I buy from them a lot. They are great guys and if you don’t find what you are looking for, let them know. I picked up some 16/4 Poplar from them a few weeks ago. They have great prices and a good selection. They specialize in domestic hardwoods and even have reclaimed wood. Since they have their own mill and Kiln, you can get custom orders. Last time I was in there they had a good selection of walnut slabs and a number of maple burls as well.

Sorry Robert, I had planned on doing an interview type video with the owner but once I got there he kept getting calls and other customers. The prices have come down some since then.

I have heard of Exotic Lumber but they are a bit to far to go for me.

They have a ton of slabs for anybody who deals with slabs.

Brian, I stop by localwoods quite often on my way to and from my cabin in WV. They have a great selection of wood. Even my wife enjoys going in and looking, however that usually means another project for me. I have purchased a few walnut slabs for various projects.
