Topic tags/keywords: lumber seattle ash

Hi there,

I live about 30 miles east of seattle and need to find a supplier for some lumber. Looking for Ash right now, but would like to have options. Any information would be most helpful.

I have used Crosscuts, some say they are a bit high, but they do have a great selection of all kinds of hardwoods.

They are in Seattle as well as Portland, last time I checked.

I have ash as well as a good variety of other hardwoods available and will ship anywhere in the continental United States. If you are interested our fellow LJ HeirloomWoodworking has been here a few times and has some projects posted on this site made out of Black Walnut and Honeylocust he picked up while here. Let me know if there is anything I can do. My phone number is in the contacts section of my semi-completed website shown below.

Comptons is across teh street from Crosscut. L:ook on Craigs List for a sawyer in Rochester by Centralia. He has barns ful of wood I have been told. I have never been there but have seen his listing occasionally under materials.

Good evening Ty,
The best place I have found is CrossCut lumber located in South Seattle – just south of Safeco Field – and just north of WoodCraft:)

They have an excellent selection with extremely reasonable prices. I just picked up some 8/4 slabs of Mahogany 18+ inches wide 12 feet long for less than $5 / per board ft.

There is also Comptons in south Seattle they’re pretty close to CrossCut – I haven’t personally purchased from them. However, they were recommended by a friend of mine who just finished gutting and remodeling his entire house. I know he bought well over 500 bft of cherry. He built/rebuilt just about everything including all of the interior doors.

Kind regards,
