Hey guys. I have been wanting to get some fresh materials for projects. I did not want to pay for shipping or the fuel to go get it. So I spent about 3 hours last night looking for a local dealer. I found one In Clinton MS. Pickens Hardwoods Inc. These nice people were not on the woodfinder site. And the nearest dealer was a 4 hour drive. This place is gigantic. And the owners are very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. I love living in the hospitality state.

Here is the site site.
They can meat all your needs. They have carving blanks, turning blanks and pen blanks.
Their prices were very reasonable.
In January 1990 Fred and Sharon Pickens opened Pickens Hardwoods. They had been brokering truck and container loads of hardwood lumber since 1980 and had always felt that there was a market for a shop that would sell hardwoods in small quantities. Pickens Hardwoods opened in a 2,000 square foot warehouse with Southern Oak, Ash, Poplar, and Walnut being the main species stocked. Planning was the only service offered.
In July 1995 the move was made to the current facility, which is over 50,000 square feet in size. Over the years new domestic species have been added as well as many exotics. Now approximately 50 different species are available, most in variety of thicknesses.
Give them a try.

Let me know the next time you head over there, I’m about a half mile away…... And yes, they are the best at getting anything you need. They’re all very knowledgeable on the subject of hardwood.
