Hi Steve,

If you are looking for rough stock Johnsons Workbench in South Bend has a nice selection and I picked up some sweet cherry and quarter sawn Oak from Reberly located in Buchanan Mich. Reberly is on this site.

craigslist is my main source of hardwood. There are tons of posts about hardwood for sale from small mills in Michigan.

Nothing in particular. Just a good local resource to buy from. You aren’t too far way so I’ll have to pay you a visit for my next project. Kendallville is a bit far for the size projects I do. Thanks for the help guys.

Talk about resurrecting a old post… Does anyone know what happened to Bill? I recently moved to Warsaw, IN and I’ve been looking for a good lumber source. It would be amazing to find something here in town..

Wibles u-pick looks to be about an hour away, so that’s an option, but if anyone has any other suggestions for mills near here, I’m open.

Thanks guys!

Thanks Daniel. That is the same number I found on google, but the address is different. I haven’t gotten anyone to pick up that phone number, but maybe I’ll pass by the address and take a look because it is so close to me.

Woodmaster, I’ll probably check LL Johnson’s whenever I need exotics, but I should be able to get all the local species I need right here in Warsaw. If anyone else is looking near here, I’ve also found Gary Greene (urban forester/sawyer) in north Webster. He has a great selection of domestic woods.

There is one I forgot to mention. I have only used them once a long time ago and that is Holmes lumber in Columbia city which is about 15 minutes from Warsaw. Pike lumber in Akron, In could be another source.

I have bought wood from Hickory and Oak near Decatur, MI and always found a good price and quality.

Have your say...
