Not sure if this is the correct forum for this question, but does anyone know of a supplier in Maryland that has wood planed for scroll work? I’ve been buying online from a supplier but I’d really like to find something local and save myself the shipping. Unfortunately, I don’t have a planer yet for my shop. I saw there is a place in Rockville (Woodcraft store, I think?). Do they carry wood suitable for scrollsawing? Is there anyone in southern MD? I live in southern PG County right on the border of Charles.

The wood craft atore near me sells very clean thin pieces of wood, normally 4” wide is the largest. They have wider boards, but they are most likely thicker.

If you can find a small sawmill, you might have some good luck getting them to saw thiner boards, find one with a planer, you might get what you are looking for.

Thanks! I’m hoping to make a trip up to the Woodcraft store in Rockville at some point, but it’s a bit of a drive.

Hey Sioranth, I’m down in Charles near the Mall,

Check out MD Select Hardwoods He’s a bit further south down off RT6 past Port Tobacco. Dennis is great, and does have a planer and will sell surfaced stock. Never can tell what you may find from him, he often runs specials on shorts.

For Woodcraft, the Springfield VA store is actually closer.

Not sure what dimensions you’re looking for to work with, if you get in a pinch and need to mill some stock, I can help you out

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it

I second MD Select Hardwoods. He usually will give you a good deal on shorts. I got a bunch 4/4 to 6/4 mahogany cutoffs from him for $0.99 a board foot.

The Springfield, CA woodcraft is moving here soon. I can’t remember where exactly but not too far from its current location, might even be closer to you.

You’re also welcome to use my planer (or any other tool in the shop) if ever need it, I live down in Hollywood, just off 235. I’ve got a 26.5” resaw bandsaw that works pretty well for getting wide boards of 1/4” stock from large slabs!

Wow, hearing you guys talk about southern Maryland brings back memories. I grew up in southern Maryland, Charlotte Hall, and graduated from Thomas Stone. Have not been back since 1975.
