Hey Mike, I got a couple of deals on mixed species cutoff selections on Ebay. Paid 10 bucks for a flat rate box of all kinds of stuff that will be perfect for Intarsia. Give it a look, I see that stuff on there all the time.

Check these guys out;
I’m not seeing it online but in other catalogs of theirs, they have odd lot boxes of various bits and pieces of wood species, they’re FANTASTIC on the phone, so you can give them a call and they might have some stuff for ya.

Buddy I know a guy here in Glasgow who makes furniture . The offcuts perfect for intarsia projects are given to me freely by the sackfull by him.Anyway why am I telling you this Michael me young chap ? because you will almost certainly live near such a place in your district and do the same.Good Luck from Alistair in Scotland p.s. If you lived near me I would give you free a years supply.

There is but they are only in AZ, they can ship. They sell samples, in packs and singles, this might work for you.

Sorry you’re having such a hard time finding wood. If you have access to a band saw or table saw you can rip thick pieces down to what you want. You can buy select pine and cedar, oak and stain the pieces. Be sure to use a fine grit on the final sand and use a prestain.
