Well I am in the middle of the state farther from Portland then you are Jim or Steve would be welcome to use my shop for as long as he needed free of charge of course. My shop isn’t equipped as well as many others but I have enough equipment to do some of the work and plenty of work space.

There is an excellent supplier just up the street from where I work at the airport. He supplies the wood for Woodcrafters and Woodcraft. Minimum retail purchase $100.00. I will get the name and phone number and PM Stevie. I will see what I can find as far as tool / space. He’s welcome to use my garage shop but I don’t have a planner or router table. I do have an accurate table saw, jointer, spindle sander, band saw, drill press.
Of course there would be no charge for the use of my tools and garage (unheated). Let me know. I have a small pickup and can help him get supplies.

I’m not in the area….but was quite moved by the wonderful offers…..I am constantly reminded here what a great group of followers that this hobby attracts….and this site.

Needless to say…if you somehow get pushed down south a bit (errr…quite a bit – I would say) I would be more than happy to assist in any way I could.

Jim,

There is a couple of places to buy wood up here. For the proffesional wood worker i recomend Lumber products and Emerson hardwood, though there are a few retail wood seller like WoodCrafters and Cross Cut hardwoods. I tend to stay away from the retail sellers unless i just need a board or two because the pile is allways picked over and the hefty mark ups at least 25%.
If your looking to puchase power tools i allways recomend craigslist, there always plenty of tools looking for homes at less than new prices. If your just looking to S4S your rough lumber i could extend my shop to you for a couple hours . I’m returning from So Cal on the 27.

Here’s one I found myself I’ve already sent it to Steve. It’s a pretty interesting concept.

Hey Drewskie
Tree products is north of me about 60 miles so I don’t use them much. It is a small world Tal and his wife are great folks and seem very interested in all aspects of woodworking. I guess Steve is still looking for a good and cheaper source of wood.

Yes, i second that Moxon hardwoods is a great source. Althoug you should defitly call them and find there availibility on your quartered white oak and talk to them about the quanity that you may need. They work as a broker mostly selling to bigger suppliers as an importer. For small quanities they usualy have to break open a unit, i don’t think that they have a problem with that, I have pucahed as little as 100 BF from them. My old employer used to by units of flat white oak and cherry and i can tell you the quality of the lumber was allways above average most of the time just amazing.

Jim,

I am no where near Portland, but I just wanted to comment on how impressed I am with the effort that LJ community puts into helping each other. You in particular seem like one good guy.

Here are a couple of places that I buy lumber from:
Goby Walnut & Western Hardwoods
Crosscut Hardwoods
Hardwood Industries

As for schools and Guilds, she can check out Northwest Woodworking Studio (I have taken a couple of classes at the school and I’m currently enrolled in their Mastery program) and the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers.

There is a membership industrial arts shop in Portland called ShopPeople , they are east of the river on Grant. I know they offer weekly memberships.

Shop People is on the Artsy end of the specturm and Portland TechShop (in Beaverton) is on the high tech end.

I’ll add to the recommendations for Moxon Hardwoods. Excellent selection, very helpful and decent prices. I am on a 2 week break and can offer up transporting wood with my truck. I am very close to Moxon.
