Topic tags/keywords: sumac supplier maryland virginia

Does anyone have a good resource for a supplier of Sumac either in the southern MD/VA area or who does mail order? There’s an intarsia project I’d love to do with some sumac specifically because of its black light colors, but finding it online has left me feeling like I’m chasing unicorns. lol Or is there another wood that lights up like sumac under a black light that’s easier to obtain? I’d prefer staghorn sumac but beggars can’t be choosers.

This is what it looks like under black light. Last one on the right in the first pic.

Can’t help with your question about suppliers of Sumac. But, an idea for possible alternative wood can be seen in this video by Peter Brown

Very cool video! Unfortunately, I’m really looking for something with that bright vibrant blue/green tone rather than something bright yellow. I’m definitely open to alternatives but so far I haven’t seen anything that shows that same color as sumac.

Have your say...
