I get all my wood from Missouri & Arkansas, but that’s because I live in southwest Missouri. I’ve got good access to the area hardwoods, and run a portable sawmill. I was down in Florida a few months ago doing a sawmill demo. I cut some beautiful cypress & oak while I was there, and brought back enough tight grained, quarter sawn cypress to keep me in string instrument soundboards for years! PM me and I’ll give you my contact info. Stop by sometime when you’re up this way. I’ll supply the logs, and let you run the mill, if you like. You just might decide that you’d rather buy or salvage logs and mill your own lumber there in Fla.
Here’s a walnut crotch I recently cut on my mill. I love it!
