There are three locations for MacBeath Hardwood in California and one in Utah. Berkeley, CA., San Francisco, CA., San Hose, CA. and Salt Lake City, Utah. If you are close to Salt Lake there is another called High Mountain Forest Products. You can google them both. Hope this helps.

You should get in touch with Rob on this web page. Many of us have purchased wood from him. He has an amazing amount of wood, many different kinds. You can get it from rough to S4S, you choice. Alot cheaper then anywhere. He is a really good guy.

Northern NV uses up a lot of real estate, but if you’re near Reno or Tahoe, you might try Aura Hardwood in Rancho Cordova, CA (near Sacramento)

In southeast washington there is Jensen hardwoods. That’s where my dad gets all his wood (but you would have to traverse the entire state of oregon to get there, though they do ship).

Macbeath is pretty decent. I was just at the Berkeley store today. The prices are a little higher compared to other parts of the country but fair for California (note that the prices displayed online are not the same as the actual store). They supply several of the local Rocklers and Woodcrafts.

There is also Woodworkers Source (in AZ). Any boards I’ve ordered from them has been high quality. But you do a pay a premium for not having to sift through the pile yourself.
