Vienna Hardwoods is downright dangerous!

I forgot to comment on Springfield Woodcraft; They do have some selection of woods, but as implied earlier, that is not their main sales item. You may find some nice boards, but they don’t restock very often. The prices are actually not bad, and they are good if you need to find one board to finish a project. They also have a club card so you can earn 10% off after you spend $100. They are probably best for turning blanks and small exotics.

One other to mention is Colonial Hardwoods in Springfield/Newington. They are actually a combo cabinet shop, hardwood and supply seller. Decent selection, but their prices are the highest of all mentioned in this thread. They do have a nice cut-off bargain bin that you can pick through, but there are no guarantees on what you may find from day to day.

I have seen a couple of sawyers on Craigslist in NoVa, but I have not dealt with them. Seems like green wood most of the time.
