Hi everyone, if you ever get to Kansas City Mo, check out Metro Hardwoods in Independance MO

They have woods from all over the world, good pricing, friendly staff, and we all know the smell of a good lumber store. It greats you the moment you walk in the door.

Definatly worth the trip.

I have been there a couple of times. But I have a question. Isn’t that a long way to come to see a wood supplier? LOL

I am a big fan of Metro Hardwoods. They have a great selection and fair prices.

Jeff does a great job helping any way he can. Members of the Kansas City Woodworkers Guild get a 10% discount.

I drive about 20 miles to get there but they are the best in KC.

If you are buying a medium sized amount of wood, their parent company, Liberty Hardwoods, sells at wholesale and delivers for a very small amount. You cannot pick individual pieces of wood but I have been very satisfied with the wood they picked.

Any both Metro and Liberty Hardwoods are great places and good people to deal with.

Ya it was a bit of a trip for the wood I picked up..Actually we go to Lee’s Summit 3 or 4 times a year to attend Steve and Kathy Grays World Revival Church. Went to IHOP this year as well. Both were wonderful and reviving.

They are a great bunch of guys. They also are part of Liberty hardwoods in Missouri, or at least share delivery services with them. I have bought from both…Metro is a regular retail, while at Liberty you cannot pick boards, you just get what they pick from their stock. Whey I got my Metro order of Bubinga, it was on a Liberty truck.
