Bell Forest Products is my favorite internet based supplier of lumber. They are having a promotion on curly maple. They are selling a 20 board feet project pack for $129.99 (including shipping). That’s $6.50/bf for curly maple. They have even better prices on larger packs and they want $7.00/bf for a 10 bf pack.

I have never seen maple (let alone curly maple) for $2.45/bf. Too bad it is 500 miles away.

Rich – I have to agree with you on Bell Forest Products. They are a first class operation. I’ve gotten excellent hardwood shipped to me at prices that are more competitive than my local hardwood dealers.

I’m also a +1 for Bell, great guys, easy to deal with, no quote is an issue, even the shipping isn’t that much of a killer.

hey fellas, I sell curly maple too off my site. I have a regular supply at a regular price $4.75 a board foot. All my prices blow bell forest out of the water, check it out if you want. I don’t have the overhead of a large company like that so I can really beat everyone’s prices. The site is still under work right now but should be good to go within a week.
