I recently moved to the Tampa Bay area, we’re a half hour from Tampa and an hour from Orlando. I’m looking for a place to buy hardwoods, mainly poplar. I make small wooden toys, so where I used to live I was able to buy off-cuts at a lumberyard. For example poplar (or maple or beech) in about 5” x 3/4” by a few feet long, for some of the things I make. Anyone have any ideas of places around here?
