Topic tags/keywords: walnut maple bubinga cedar cherry wenge zebrawood alder ash basswood

In search of a good vendor in the North Eastern PA or Tri-State region. I would be in the market for dimensional lumber not typically sold at big box hardware stores, as their “exotics” only consist of Maple and Oak. Not so exotic.

I appreciate the guidance in advance.

I live in Philadelphia and i have about an hour ride south to Hearne Hardwoods. The place is amazing. Definitely worth the drive for me, i dont know where you would be coming from in PA though.

I live about 1hr west of Hershey, and there are a lot. Hearns is a good one. got to woodfinder.com and put in your zip. Thats a good site to find close to you. I used it to find the ones below. You can always use www.searchtempest to search all the craigslists in your area by zip. I found 500bf of good cherry from state college for 3$/bf. :)

I’ve bought from both hearnes ,groffs, and fleetwood. I found the pricing to be better at fleetwood, if you need thickstock then groff is a great selection. If you want the wild stuff Talarico is fun to just go look at, it’s great quality, but you will pay for that.

  • Sapper :
    Hearne is a tad far for me (roughly 3 hr drive.). I will keep in mind though, thank you.

No problem. I used it in the midwest and east coast and it was on the money! Good luck.

Your best bet would be Polley Lumber. http://www.polleywood.com/ Bill Polley is a great sawyer. Super nice, great product, great price. Can’t say anything bad after several thousand board feet of lumber. Just don’t take any of that nice stuff that I go there looking for! Tell him Matt from Clean Air Woodworks sent you.

I drive all the way from south eastern NY.
