I started a threat on this subject a few days ago.

I would like to update people on my discoveries regarding this wood.

I attempted to place an order with Seasonwood for 4 board feet of thermal treated white oak. I wanted to experiment with it by making a box. I asked them to cut 2 4/4 boards that were 6” by 48”.

The price for the wood was reasonable at $6.81/bf. However, the shipping cost was $53 for a one week delivery. I think part of the problem is that they are located in British Columbia and shipping out of Canada must be more expensive. I declined to proceed.

Hopefully, some US based company will consider marketing this product from a location where shipping can be more reasonable.

I spoke to these guys a few months back. They had some Purewood on hand, but I got the feeling they weren’t very impressed with it; they mainly supply deck materials, and I was thinking of making outdoor furniture. Don’t know what their shipping cost is.

There was an article in one of the prominent woodworking magazines recently about thermal treated wood. Unfortunately, I do not remember which magazine. It would have been either Popular Woodworking, American Woodworker or Fine Woodworking since those are the ones tat I subscribe to. You might be able to search on their websites to find the article. I think that the listed some suppliers in the article.
