What section of Florida are you in? I am in the Tampa Bay region and get my wood blocks from three places: Woodcraft in Sarasota, Woodcraft in Clearwater, and Anderson Lumber in St. Petersburg. That last one is a real adventure and I highly recommend it.

For bandsaw boxes, I glue up several different species, depending on the design. Often use just one species. Some of my boxes have been 5” thick. That’s a hard piece to find around this part of AZ.

Scrappy, another LJ, glues up for turning, too….I think.

Dudley: Go to this web page and pick your wood. Then select from the available sizes. For example, you can get a 3 by 6 by 6 inch block of Paduck for $17.99.

Gene is right, Around here you have to make your own thick blocks (glue up) or order them.
