I am looking for a good supplier of curly maple. My local guy can’t/won’t get it and I am unsure where to go. I live in Kennewick, WA which is in the SE part of the state (2hrs S of Spkane, 3.5hrs SE of Seattle). I’m looking for a good supplier closer to me.

I am a novice woodworker, especially when it comes to picking good material/board selection. I have found one supplier online who seems great, but is across the country and would cost a bunch for shipping. His website can be found here : www.curlymaplewood.com

I like that he has photos of all his inventory, just concerned about cost for getting it to me. Any help in finding a closer supplier to me would be much appreciated. I am in need of 12-15 board feet of Cury Maple, but of course would buy more if the price is right.

Thanks,

-- Sam

I think stockmaker is out that way.. Oregon? He’s been posting some green big leaf maple stuff recently.

I know Bell Forest Products is having a sale on Curly Red Leaf Maple here right now. $70 for 10 board feet or $130 for 20 board feet. Both of those prices include the shipping. Not a bad deal. Doesn’t have individual pictures though. I did just order some curly maple myself from Kevin at www.curlymaplewood.com and while it was great to see what I was getting and I am pleased about what I got, I just wish shipping would have been less. I got 6 boards all around 30 inches long and the shipping was like $40-$50 to Central California. So, if you don’t mind sight unseen, I’d probably go with the cheaper one. I believe Bell Forest has a decent rep around here. Maybe someone who has dealt with them before can comment on that.

Woodworkers Network (http://www.woodworkernetwork.com/index.php?p=home) just north of Chawella. They have all kinds of wood there. I shop there regularly. I know it’s not real local but beats going to Seattle.
