Can anyone around the Charlotte, NC area recommend any good lumber suppliers? I know of Queen City lumber and the Hardwood Store in Gibsonville (a bit farther than I want to drive), but am looking for any other options.

Thank you.

Is Asheville too far for you to consider?

Okay – I do not know what you are looking for, but a couple of links.

Gennett sells a variety of lumber, not just for flooring.
http://www.gennettlumber.com/

Cormark has an incredible inventory of various Exotic hardwoods. I believe they supply stores like Woodcraft. http://www.cormarkint.com/

I’ve been to both places. Cormark is in Weaverville (where I live) just north of Asheville.
e Hope this helps.

I live a couple hours north of you in Greensboro.

I find that the Craigs list “materials” area is just chock full of ads for small sawmills selling the more common varieties (oak, walnut, cherry) almost constantly. I would venture to guess the same is true down in the Charlotte area.

Have you tried Wurth Wood Group? I haven’t been to the one in Charlotte, but I’ve had good luck at the one in Greer, SC. They have standard hardwood and plywood, such as Ash, Maple, Oak, Poplar, walnut, Sapele, etc.

Wncguy- Thanks for those suggestions. I’ll check them out next time I’m out that way, which should be next month. I’m not looking for anything exotic, just hardwoods at more varied sizes than what HD and Lowes carry and pine of better grades.

Jeff- I check craigslist every so often but don’t find too many adds for small sawmills around here, although there are a couple I know of off the top of my head. That’s a good reminder for me to start looking for ‘free wood’ adds now that spring is almost here.

Joe- I hadn’t heard of the Wurth Wood Group until you mentioned them. It looks like they have a huge variety and they’re not too far from me.

If Asheville isn’t too far, then maybe another choice would be Wall Lumber in Moyodan. I’ve bought a fair amount of stuff from him and had it shipped (ouch). High quality, good service, and very good prices compared to what i have locally.

West Penn Hardwoods near Hickory. Hands down the best selection of anyone in NC. If Asheville isn’t too far then Gibsonville isn’t too far.

Matt, I live south of Charlotte in Rock Hill and sell a little bit of the lumber I mill for myself. PM me if interested. I also happen to work in Charlotte so if the drive is too much for you I can bring lumber into town and we can meet up to have a look at it.

Wall Lumber in Moyodan and The Hardwood Store in Gibsonville are all I know.

A friend just came back from Asheville today and was talking about the amazing inventory of slabs at Asheville Hardware. I’m going to that area next week and plan on checking it out.

Good to know. I live in Monroe but work all around the area, including Rock Hill. I’m not looking for anything exotic; I’m really looking for a place where I can get lumber cut from the same log to make boommatched tabletops and things like that. I will probably get in touch with you when I start some projects later this spring.

Have your say...
