I don’t remember how I heard of this place, but having exhausted my search for decent Walnut in San Diego I decided to try something different.
These guys are located in the Brea / Anaheim area so it was about an hour drive for me. I called up first and spoke with a sales rep – Steven – who informed me that their stock was great with extra wide boards. One thing that is different than what many are used to is that you don’t pick your lumber. You tell them what you need and they grab it when you get there. This was fine with me and my project requirements. I let him know I was looking for 20bf of 4/4 walnut FAS and I was told to show up to will call and pick it up. If I didn’t like it, don’t take it. Cool.
When I showed up I approved the purchase order and a guy went and grabbed 3 boards. All boards were 8 footers and way straighter than I had expected. What I also didnt expect was that they were all over 10” wide with the largest (pictured) at 12.5”. Oh and the 4/4 was an 1 1/8” thick. It was under $6 a bf and exceeded my expectations.
I try to pay less than $5 bf but its a near impossibility to find good walnut in SD for that.
My sales rep also told me that they deliver to San Diego with no minimum purchase and what I considered a very reasonable delivery charge.
