I agree with Toolz – Muterspaw has a good selection of domestic hardwoods at good prices.

Look in the yellow pages for Motz farm. They’re located in Anderson. Their main business is a sod farm, but they do lot clear cutting for construction developments. Most of that goes to firewood, but they do have sideline of hardwood. It’s hit or miss what they have on hand, always worth a call.

In July, I drove through Amish country. I know that would be a bit of a drive for you, but they’re quality was excellent, their choices were plenty, and their prices were cheap !!

Just another thought. A big load would probably make it well worth your while !

I went to one in Middlefield….

I have been using Muterspaw and he runs a top notch place. Good wood at good prices.

Has anybody bought any wood from the sawmills out east of town a little bit? I have to go out to Adams county every once in a while for work, and have passed probably a half dozen smaller sawmills out there. I usually just buy wood by the project, so I’ve never bought more then 30 or 40 bdft. Usually it’s more like 10 or 15. I don’t have a truck so I’m always in my car when I’m out there so I haven’t wanted to just stop somewhere.

I live on the south side of the river so Xenia is a pretty good drive to get to Muterspaw. Thanks.

the sawmills out east sound intriguing, but that’s a long way from Liberty Township. If you ever happen to stop there sometime mathom7, let us know.

Thanks everyone, Matt you’re pretty close…I’m in Fairfield. Did you know Woodcraft moved…they’re across the street from the Tri-County mall in a much bigger store now.

Go to Hardwood Lumber and More in Milford and ask Steve where you can get it. He will tell you. Cooper at Paxton Lumber in Maderia may know as well.

I went into Woodcraft the other day. Store is huge but looks empty as they are now starting to unpack and stock up the store.

Yeah, I hope they fill up that huge new store. It’ll be interesting to see how the competition plays out between them and Rockler around the corner.
