Anyone in the Dallas area user Austin Hardwoods for there wood purchases. I used to go there and they would let you scrummage through and pick out what lumber you needed. Just wondering if they still allow that.

I think they closed down a few months ago. And shipped most of their lumber to Austin/San Antonio stores.
Someone tell me if I am wrong!

I should call them and see if that is correct. If it is I sure hate to see that. That is the only place around Dallas I shopped for lumber.

I had the same experience as you at Austin Hardwoods but I haven’t lived in Dallas for 6 years now. It would be a shame if they weren’t there anymore.

I tried calling their local number and it has changed to a 210 area code, San Antonio I think. So I guess they closed down in Dallas, bummer.

Austin hardwood shut down.
Try these guys, they have a good selection and you can go through the pile if you want.
There located in Grand Prairie just off 360 near the trinity river.

I did get some Maple recently at wood world, it was reasonably priced I think. It was $5bf s4s.
I also bought some maple plywood and some baltic birch ply at McKillican. There prices are very fair.
1/2 60 X 60 Birch ply $14.00 1/4 48×96 Maple ply $24 and change. They will also deliver very reasonably too. I think if sale is under $200.00 cost $12.00 to deliver local. Over $200.00 was like $4.00. Top quality too.
Otherwise I check craigslist often, reclaimed lumber from pallets for shop equipment etc…

Davo,
If you ever get over to the good side of 360, you should look at Barney Robinson Hardwoods, and try Plywood Company of Fort Worth.
