Hello everyone, I am hoping I can get pointed in the right direction.
BTW I am very new to wood working, I am a total noob to sources ect… as I am coming from a metal machining background.

So I need a solid source for Bloodwood and Blackwood blanks, dimensions – .5” x 24” x 24”.

I have been having a hard time finding a source for these online, and suggestions is highly appreciated.

Thank you!

I’ve been to Bell Forest Products many times and they would be a good source.

Also contact the Frank Miller Lumber Co. in Union City Indiana. They have a large selection of exotic woods. They also ship.

Woodyard is a great place though I’m not sure I’ve ever seen blackwood there…(granted I’ve only been 3 times because it’s a hike for me). Rick is great.
