OK here you go guys and Gals. A good lumber jock gave me a great site to help with costs on a project. Well this made me think that there is probably many more.

Post the site URL here that you go to buy your material, and explain the biggest cost savings you find with the company.

Lew this is yours

So far drawer slides half the price of most places.

post your sites.

Thanks for the much too kind compliment!!

My Mom could probably think of a few other adjectives to describe me- “good” would, most likely, not be one of them 8^(

Just looking through my stuff I have ordered things from all these sites. A lot of them are supplies, I try to order bulk when I get supplies, you don’t know when you might need the item again and the cost each drops significantly.

Richelieu Hardware
General Hardwoods
Bond Plywood
Supergrit - abrasive supplier
McFeeley's - Screws and more
Magcraft - all types of rare earth magnets
Bendheim Cabinet Glass
Cook Woods - exotic hardwoods
Port Huron Paint - Lacquer and finishing supplies

I also deal with a Amish hardwood supplier, but they have no web site of course.

Miller’s Hardwood

Some of these are local suppliers that don’t neccessarily deal with internet orders. Richilieu is a great hardware supplier but you need to get an account approval. But then you can get wholesale pricing that can’t be beat.

I mostly use local sources but when online provides the better deal I have a few great sources. they give me great prices on undermount soft close glides. Also get a nice trash pull out trash can from them. they are a great source for a huge range of cabinet shop products.
