I just came across your blog. I been self employed for 20 years in woodworking and have used just about every supplier in NC and VA. My favorite is Wall Lumber in Mayodan NC. I like their service and the lumber they grade as select is what every one else calls FAS. Also I use to use Raleigh Hardwoods and Gilbirt Hardwoods but stopped using them because they always shorted me on my lumber order quantities. I would order 500 bdft and they would bill for 500 but only send 400 and then we would get into a dispute on how to calculate bdft quantities. Also, all the other suppliers want to subtract a percentage for shrinkage from drying and it is any where from 7 to 15%. At wall lumber they dont do this. If you order 100 bdft youget 100 ft and pay for 100 ft.
