Anyone live in or knows of good places to buy lumber in Los Angeles? I go to Penn Lumber and Reel Lumber now which prices are not to bad. I have room for some storage of wood although not alot compared to some. I have a Jointer and Planner which helps.
Thx in advance,
Ken Lakits

My personal favorite is Cherokee Wood Products in Upland… good stuff & it’s close to me.

Austin Hardwoods. Specialize in all exotic hardwoods. You should see the 14 foot x 3” x 27” Babinga they have. Walnut slabs as tall as an elephant (no joke) It’s my favorite place to go. But it is located in Santa Ana Ca. Awesome place. Caters to wood worker hobbyist and contractors. PM if you would like additional info.

Tule Peak Timber is centrally located in Southern California, between the cities of Aguanga and Anza, near “Tule Peak”
This is the company of lumberjock ‘socalwood’ they specialize in urban harvest.

They seem to get a lot of unusual timbers, and specialties. Don’t know costs, but if you are looking for cool stuff he has it in stock.
