What Northwest store are you referring to???

Nicely figured wood is hard to find around here, and then they want a premium price for it, I have bought a 10 foot board to get two feet of figure … and when I see one I buy it whether I need it or not … When I hook up the camper and go traveling, I look for local sawyers and see what they have, some times you hit the jackpot.

northwest woodwork, 5411 W. Orange dr, #17
602-999-0557,
usually open on saturday, but call and check, have lots of slabs, some burls, and stuff.
I found some spalted alder, as i’d never heard of it before, but bought a gaggle of it, for STUFF, lol
who knows what i will use it for,

but will say, they have some stuff for sure, i’m headed back over next saturday, to find a couple live edges for a countertop my pal needs, we made a template today so gonna head that way.

If you want some short slabs and misc. there is a fella around 59th ave and greenway, who has a saw mill at his house, usual fan fare, mesquite, some sissoo, little acacia, and misc. reasonbaly priced, but nothing over say 5 ft in length.

What city and state are you talking about?

Address is in Humboldt, AZ by a Google search. Not sure how that qualifies as Northwest, NW AZ?

Sorry guys, the Northwest wood works store is in glendale, arizona

they do have a web site, but the one on card is not correct, if you call they will give it to you.

I’m kind of confused. What is the question? Do you want to find a place to buy more? Or want to know how it works or both. Your original post is a bit confusing to me.
