I live in a remote area and need help finding a source of hardwood that I can buy online. I am making some ladder back chairs and need 8/4 clear straight grain white ash. Thanks

Remote areas are some of the best places to find local wood. Take a look on your local Craigslist to see if there are any sawmills nearby.

I’m fortunate enough to have this store here in town, but http://www.woodworkerssource.com does ship, and from what I see in the reviews customers are pretty happy with what they get.

I bought some Oak many years back from Steve Wall Lumber . At the time, they had an UPS bundle that was reasonable priced. This was when orders were done on paper form, through US Postal mail from a printed catalog. So, no idea how they are now.

Dart, you don’t mention where you live, but you can also look at woodfinder.com to find sources. HTH

I’ve never bought wood from there but live relatively near and lots of woodworkers around here say it’s a great place. I’ve also heard positive feedback from people who mail ordered.

I don’t know if they carry ash but you might take a look at Gilmer Hardwoods in Portland, OR.
Also check your local Craigslist. Small local sawmills will often advertise there.

There are alot of Companies that have shipping options. I am down in Las Vegas, and use Peterman lumber here for most of my needs. I know they ship, but I am not sure if they ship to Idaho.
http://petermanlumber.com/

I have an Uncle over in Evanston, Wy. He has used Macbeath in salt lake. There web site says they ship out of there Berkley, Ca. store. I am prety sure he makes the drive to salt lake from time to time.
http://www.macbeath.com/order-online
I Know some of the guys here in Vegas have drove all the way to Phoenix for a better selection of more exotic wood than what peterman sells, I believe they go to Wood workers source that Rich Taylor mentioned. But most should have Ash. Shop around to see who will give you the best prices.
good luck,

-- John

South Central Idaho is still a pretty big place. Boise has several hardwood outlets, McCall probably has something. Salmon may have an outlet. Grangeville or Lewiston. Local builders can probably give their sources. I know local builder don’t all come to Boise for there hardwoods.
